ATTENTION PORTSMOUTH RESIDENTS (past, present and future)…Rhode Island PBS (AKA Channel 36) is premiering Our Town: Portsmouth tonight at 8pm. Here’s a quick blurb from their blog:

Among the stories in the film are segments about coaching (the horse and carriage kind); the Portsmouth High School Patriots Marching Band; Portsmouth’s history and highlights of its 375th anniversary; historic Greenvale Vineyards; the story of Julia Ward Howe, whose poem became the Battle Hymn of the Republic; Hunt Yachts; polo; meandering stone walls, and more. Here are story summaries.

Part fund-raiser, part community builder, part historical and cultural documentary, and part “day-in-the-life” video scrapbook, Our Town: Portsmouth is the third documentary in the Our Townseries. The first film, Our Town: Glocester, premiered a year ago in December 2014. The second,Our Town: North Kingstown, premiered in September 2015 and will encore at 9:30 p.m., following the debut of the latest in the series, Our Town: Portsmouth.

If you miss the premiere, fire up your Tivos to grab one of the repeats.

After the premiere on December 2, Our Town: Portsmouth will encore on December 8 at 4 a.m., December 10 at 9 p.m., and December 11 at 2 a.m.
