Our Hometown: Littleton Premieres October 11 at 8pm on NHPBS

(Durham, October 1, 2018) - Littleton is featured in the newest episode of the New Hampshire PBS series, OUR HOMETOWN.  This show features stories told by those who live in, love and know their town, OUR HOMETOWN: LITTLETON delves into the history of this Grafton County town that sits along the Connecticut River and just north of the notches.

The 30-minute show tells the story of how an Olympian is made, profiles one business with a sweet story to tell and one with a bit of spirit, looks at the Uber in the 1800's, explores one man's lasting vision, how the train tracks led to Littleton and explains the town's history with a hook.

The stories generously shared for OUR HOMETOWN, shed light on Littleton's past and present. While it was not possible to include all 45 stories in the 30-minute program, everyone's story will be showcased online at nhpbs.org/hometown, creating a historical archive of life in Littleton.

Produced in partnership with each community, OUR HOMETOWN engages residents and businesses in telling their stories, which are then recorded and edited into a 30-minute television program for New Hampshire PBS. All stories, as well as the full program, are available at nhpbs.org/hometown. The series is hosted by New Hampshire author and storyteller, Rebecca Rule.

The OUR HOMETOWN series premiered in 2015 with a focus on Peterborough, followed by shows about Colebrook, Stratham, Wolfeboro and Milford. The series explores the vibrant culture, commerce, history and people of New Hampshire's towns and cities. Charlestown will be the next stop in the series.

OUR HOMETOWN: LITTLETON premieres Thursday, October 11 at 8 p.m. on NHPBS with multiple airdates on NHPBS and NHPBS EXPLORE and online at video.nhpbs.org
