Behind The Scenes NASA Footage Resurfaces

Clayton Anderson, courtesy NASAThough it is no longer in production or actively airing episodes, footage shot for "This is Nebraska" is making its way onto the airwaves this week.

"This is Nebraska" creator Barry Kriha traveled to the Kennedy Space Center earlier this year to chronicle the training of astronaut Clayton Anderson, the first native Nebraska scheduled to travel into outer space. If everything goes as scheduled, Anderson will lift off aboard the space shuttle Atlantis Friday at 6:38 p.m. CDT.

Kriha, who has worked as a producer, reporter and account executive at several TV stations, said KETV (Cox Channel 9) was among several stations that called to request video he shot of Anderson.

"This is Nebraska" ceased production this spring, Kriha said, when not enough advertisers were secured. It aired on stations in Omaha, Lincoln, Sioux City and Kearney.

"The sad part," Kriha said, "(was) I never got to do that story and air it on my show, so I'm glad someone used it."

I agree, how about KETV pick up TIN and get rid of Kscope. People would actually watch TIN

Kalidescope is a very successful show for KETV. It registers very good ratings, especially for a show that operates as a public service.

This is Nebraska was also a good show, doomed only by poor availabilty for air times.

9:24 am - I agree about the boring part. It's like when the blog jumped from the Reader to the City Weekly things started slowing down. Maybe Sean's getting some pressure from above to have a less controversial blog?
