DIRECTOR'S CUT

Joan Juster & Paul Hill, "Alaska Far Away"

  • Aired: 04/14/2011
  • 26:46
  • Rating: NR
In the midst of the despair of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal gave 202 struggling Midwestern farm families an extraordinary opportunity: a chance to start over in a far-away Alaska. Alaska Far Away tells the story of this bold government experiment, and the families who found themselves thrust into the national spotlight along the way.
