Tangier Island Fifty Clam Chowder
John travels by boat to two isolated Chesapeake islands to learn
about their cultures, meet some residents, and try out local recipes.
Definitely the most complex show to organize and tape! We had to
arrange to transport the crew, equipment, and foods by boats and
golf carts. The friendly "islanders" were extremely helpful
and cooperative. Alva posed a dilemna for us: he wouldn't look up
when the cameras were rolling! You see the top of his head during
his recipe. Frances was a hoot, keeping everyone on their toes with
her caustic wit. Her interview was a delight. The crew enjoyed working
on this adventure, as most of them had never been on these islands
Sorry, none available.
