PBS’ ‘NOVA’ to Feature Louisiana Sinkhole in One-Hour Program
PBS just wrapped up filming their documentary series, NOVA, in Bayou Corne, Louisiana.
According to BayouBuzz.com, the Public Broadcasting Service’s show NOVA will feature the Louisiana sinkhole on a future episode.
Film crews finished four days of interviews and gathering shots in Bayou Corne last Friday. The massive sinkhole appeared in 2012 in Assumption Parish and has grown to 32 acres in two years. It swallowed up a former cypress swamp. In the video above, you can see that the sinkhole was still hungry just over a year ago.
NOVA is expected to focus on the 350 people who were effected by the hole, as well as report on why and where sinkholes occur. The show also hopes to shed light on what can be done to lessen the likelihood of one happening, or prevent it altogether.
The hour-long episode is expected to air in the winter of 2015.
