OF TV SHOOT BY BEV CRAIG WHITE

NBC TV's Today Show crew spent two days in June in Shelburne, Nova Scotia shooting footage for an Independence Day segment of American Story with Bob Dotson. The award-winning Dotson and his professional crew filmed local reenactors (3rd New Jersey Volunteers, King's Orange Rangers, Brigade of the American Revolution) portraying Loyalist civilians and soldiers. The longboat built recently in Shelburne played a starring role in the shooting.  Most of the reenactors will be taking part in the Grand Reenactment Weekend on July 17-20 in Shelburne. NBC filmed 18th Century camp life, marching, parading and musket firing and a small re-creation of Loyalists landing in Shelburne. The segment aired on July 4th in the USA on NBC TV - TO 5 MILLION VIEWERS!.
