Late last night I watched episode one of the TV show "What's Your Story?" a documentary featuring Ocracoke's master storyteller, Donald Davis, as he leads 14 people on an entertaining journey of discovering their own stories during one of Donald's week-long Ocracoke Island workshops.
The documentary is a joint venture of Timpanogos Storytelling National Outreach, Kaleidoscope Pictures, BYU Broadcasting, and the Ashton Family Foundation. The program will be re-broadcast through August 12, at which time the second episode will premiere. "What's Your Story?" is available in Utah (home of the sponsoring organizations) and worldwide via satellite TV. You can find more information here (all times are Mountain Daylight Time [two hours earlier than Eastern Daylight Time]): http://www.byutv.org/Show/1996.
This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of the 1913 wreck of the 6-masted schooner, George W. Wells. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news072110.htm.
