The video is the original director's cut (the full hour and a half version) of the one hour special featured on WOSU-TV brings into focus the 200 year history of Lancaster, Ohio from the blazing of Zane's Trace to the Route 33 Bypass. The program was produced to commemorate Lancaster's bicentennial.
The partnership with WOSU TV began late last year when executive producer, Ed Clay, previewed the production and immediately began making plans to bring it to public television. Avid editor, Kenny McCoy, has been working for the past six months to trim the length of the original 90 minute program to an hour to appeal to a wider broadcast audience.
