PBS39 features the heritage and spirit of our Lehigh Valley communities from the perspective of the residents in the new Our Town series.
Our Town is an opportunity to share the unique features of your town with people throughout the Lehigh Valley and
beyond. Profiles of organizations, arts, schools, attractions, and local folklore make great stories and give viewers a sense of your area. The Our Town series is truly remarkable as members of the community help create material to broadcast! Participants are asked to grab their cameras and take to the streets as they document the people, places, and happenings that make the area special.
Sharing local stories is at the core of the spirit of public television. Our Town shows have been remarkably successful throughout Pennsylvania for over 20 years.
Past Our Town’s
Hellertown is the first town explored in Our Town : Hellertown. PBS39 partnered with the people of Hellertown to capture the essence of their town allowing our viewers to become involved with their public television station in a very meaningful way. Local residents served as our “storytellers” for this production, grabbing their video cameras, cell phones, GoPros, Flip cameras, or any other video recording devices to capture footage for their story ideas.
