"The sun does not always shine in West Virginia, but the people do."
John F. Kennedy


West Virginia
, the classic film history, first premiered on the West Virginia public broadcasting television network and on public television networks throughout the country.

It is an unparalleled saga which reveals the enduring strength and courage of a people who have faced some of America's greatest challenges — clashes between colonists and Native Americans, the Civil War split from Virginia, the Hatfield and McCoy feud, the drama of the coal and lumber camps, modern labor struggles, and the social crises leading to the 1960s War on Poverty.

Narrated by Richard Thomas, West Virginia weaves historic photographs and motion picture footage, quotes from letters and diaries, first-person interviews, and live cinematography into a rich and compelling narrative enhanced by a haunting musical score.

Running Time - Approximately 6½ hours
