In search of a simpler life, a young couple returns home to Alabama where they set out to eat the way their grandparents did — locally and seasonally. But as they navigate the agro-industrial gastronomical complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since the time farmers densely populated their family histories. An essay on community, the South, and sustainability, Eating Alabama is a story about why food matters.

May 26: Sunday Matinee: Oil Spill
Showing all day in our surround-sound, H.D. theater.
Run time approx. 27 min.
While Discovering Alabama is a natural history series showcasing the beautiful natural wonders of our state, in this show we are compelled to examine a tragedy assailed as the most catastrophic oil spill in U.S. history. On April 20, 2010, the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and burned, taking the lives of eleven work crew and leaving a damaged well casing to spew oil five thousand feet beneath the Gulf of Mexico. The spill continued for months creating an environmental disaster with long-term ecological and economic implications for Alabama. This episode of Discovering Alabama returns to coastal Alabama to visit with various experts and authorities who are working to help Alabama rebound from the impacts of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
