Frank Schoonover: The Authentic Artist is a one-hour documentary film that explores innovative Delaware illustrator Frank Schoonover’s visionary social commentary on two powerfully contrasting social frontiers in northeastern Pennsylvania—the region’s gloomy industrial landscape in the 1900’s and the pristine vistas of the Delaware River in the 1930’s. Schoonover’s moody monochromatic sketches of boys working in coal mines and girls laboring in textile mills, and his vibrant oil paintings of panoramic river settings in the Pocono Mountains, are prescient art that portrays issues of human rights and environmentalism and captures the heart of a people and a place, and the soul of an artist.
Hot and Cold is about building and renovating houses as well as updating with new types of insulation and alternative energy. It’s somewhat the tone of a This Old House, but in Hot and Cold, the host, Tom Gocze, is the expert and does the work. Tom gets his hands dirty as he explains how homeowners can do a lot of the work themselves or be more knowledgable if they were to hire someone.
This show is simply about the history of television, the technology and how television was accepted way back in it’s infancy. With each show, we try to supply you with a synopsis of what each show was about along with some historical information as well. Our goal is to expose you to samples of some of the best programming from the very early days of television; a retrospective of what was then a new medium back in the second half of the 20th century!
