Editorial Reviews

"Must-see … endlessly watchable" --Los Angeles Times
"A national treasure" --CNN Radio
"TV they really, truly don’t make anymore" --NPR’s Fresh Air

The beloved Emmy®-winning series that began on the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite

FOR 20 YEARS BEGINNING IN 1967, CHARLES KURALT WANDERED AMERICA’S BYWAYS in search of the unusual and the overlooked. He and his small crew logged more than a million miles and wore out six motor homes. For his homespun vignettes of everyday life, Kuralt won an Emmy® and three Peabody Awards and became a household name.

Curious, generous, and always warm, Kuralt found everyone fascinating: cowboys, traffic cops, short-order cooks, makers of corncob pipes, the 87-year-old college professor turned janitor who proclaimed, "No honest work is undignified." He reported on a man who fixed toys, a farmer who carved slingshots, a Russian who waited 43 years to thank the American soldiers who saved his life. No story was too small, no person too ordinary.

Time magazine dubbed Kuralt "the laureate of the common man." Perhaps the men and women he featured weren’t so common after all, but instead represented the country at its best.

Originally compiled for broadcast by the Travel Channel, each episode in this set contains 3-5 On the Road segments.

Due to the age of these programs and the improved resolution that DVD provides, you may notice occasional flaws in the image and audio on this DVD presentation that were beyond our ability to correct from the original materials.

Charles Kuralt is a great story teller making you feel like he knows you and that here is what life is about.

A history buff, Charles Kuralt's love and appreciation for the genteel lifestyle of rural America is evident.

Format: DVD
CHARLES KURALT is travelogue-perfect in this Set 2 OF "On the Road"; the Emmy-winning series which lasted over 20 years. Kuralt's CBS Evening News segments put the average, off-highway, common, American, "on the map" as well as defining the reporter's "lifetime achievement." Although this is a nostalgic look at life from 1967 to 1987; the episodes are as interesting and American for today as they were when originally filmed. Nothing on TV has matched it since. This is a MUST-OWN set (along with Set 1) for every public and school library.

This MEGA MEAL DEAL set includes Lonnie's Diner to Jerry's Deli; horseshoe tossers to a Russian dentist; an 80-horse titch to Harper's Ferry; with tobacco & toys for dessert.

You'll be awed, laugh, heart-warmed, and thoroughly entertained. The set has SUBTITLES. It's unrated, but super family friendly. 3 DVDs include 378 minutes [that's over 6 hours or equal to 4 feature-length movies], 18 episodes, 86 segments.

And for those who like EPISODE details:
1: Cloggers, Lady Pilot, Blackie, Spivey Family, Michigan: Wheels & Machines
2: British Graves, Lula Watson, Canoe Maker, Pumpkins, Ohio: The Golden Lamb
3: Moonshiners, Indiana: Poet James Whitecomb Riley, Friendship Between Man and Falcon
4: Totem Poles, Waynesburg Rain Day, Johnny Appleseed, Swings, Tennessee: A rough and Tumble Past
5: Ball of String, Fiddlers, Delaware: The Du Pont Family, Ferry Boats, Corn-Pipe Factory
6: Jump Rope, Chicago Fire, Hood Ornaments, Bottle House, New Jersey: G.W. Crossing the Delaware River
7: Toy-Fixing Man, Skipjack, Jerry's Deli, Billy Jones Railroad, S.

This looks like another great collection, and how could it be otherwise with Kuralt at the helm. The presence of the Russian Dentist story alone is worth the price of the whole set, it is a standout piece of journalism and you won't regret owning it.
There is an old Twilight Zone episode where a movie star from the past walks up into the screen showing one of her films and stays there, prefering to live in that world. I kind of feel that way watching Charles Kuralt. However, the real lesson of `On The Road' is that these stories are around us all the time. We just need eyes and ears like Charles Kuralt to recognize them.
Please keep these sets coming!

Format: DVD
Beginning in 1967 and stretching for over two decades, in his `On The Road' reports, CBS journalist Charles Kuralt (1934-1997) brings attention to people, places, stories, and events, that take place primarily in small town rural America. Travelling around the country, often driving down the back roads in a motor home, Kuralt specializes in reporting on the quaint, rustic, or generally unknown. As long as there is a kernel of human interest present, there were probably few stories too small or insignificant for Kuralt's special attention, as he brings the unheralded and arcane to the attention of the American public. Many times Kuralt's tales give you cause to think about the way you live, and the things you may take for granted, and perhaps reflect of how much the world has changed.

A history buff, Charles Kuralt's love and appreciation for the genteel lifestyle of rural America is evident. He never talks down to people, and treats everyone and everything with respect. Kuralt doesn't seems to have any political axe to grind, and prefers not to dwell on the negative. Only on rare occasions does he even broach anything controversial. Looking back, the span between those times and now, seems even more expansive. So very much has changed in the last half century or so, and much of what is presented, perhaps no longer exists. People have changed as well, and while we can never go back to the past, we can certainly appreciate things that were, and try and learn something from it.

Kuralt occasionally reports from a big city, but more often he is in some obscure rural location.

We bought this for my father. He enjoyed the first set, and he was very excited to get the second set. I'm sure he will want them all.

Charles Kuralt's journeys introduce us to fascinating characters that turn out to mirror ourselves. People can and do surprise us all the time. That is, if we turn around and look.

Charles Kuralt was, in his lifetime, a staple of Sunday morning television viewing. His folksy programs took us all over America, where we met the most amazing and interesting people. This DVD contains a large collection of those marvelous shows. Enthralling, entertaining - this was what we watched on TV decades ago, and the people we see, now all long gone, are what America was all about. They possess the sort of energy, creativity and quirkiness America was built on. I highly recommend this DVD.
