Not around here, I think.

Amidst a final flurry of activity accompanying the winding down of Seattle’s celebrations of the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition centennial, an announcement for a documentary to be shown on KCTS 9 definitely caught our eye:

In collaboration with local historical gems such as the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI), The Burke Museum, Chinese in NW American Research Committee, the University of Washington and combined with thousands of historical images, rare archival footage, contemporary interviews and narration by Tom Skerritt, Seattle’s Forgotten World’s Fair, will take the viewer on an hour-long magical journey into a nearly forgotten chapter of the burgeoning city’s history.

The perfect nightcap to Home Movie Day 2009? But more about that later. If you can’t watch it on October 17th, check the KCTS schedule for other showings of this documentary.
