“LaManche/The English Channel” Travelogue Feb. 25

February 18, 2011

KDCR presents the Travelogue “LaManche/The English Channel: A Tale of Two Cultures” at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 25, in the B.J. Haan Auditorium.

From the White Cliffs of Dover to the craggy limits of Land's End, from the Alabaster Coast of Normandy to the Emerald Coast of Brittany, “The English Channel” is a journey along the facing shores of France and England. Sometimes friendly, often confrontational, the historical relationship between these two great cultures has always been intriguing.

The narrators, Monty and Marsha Brown, will lead viewers on a journey that will show how channel swimmers train for their passage, where Paul McCartney dreamed of retiring in “When I’m 64” (that cottage in the Isle of Wight), and where the German Underground Hospital was run during World War II.

This singer/songwriter duo has written and recorded numerous songs including two that were used in the film “Steel Magnolias.” Monty’s career has included acting in London, production work with the BBC-TV, and announcing and producing for Public Radio in Louisiana. In addition to singing and playing bass, Marsha has worked in public relations and marketing.
