In addition to the nearly 100 new PBS videos added, NC LIVE is also making available a collection of local oral history documentaries produced in Wilkes County, NC. Previously only available to watch on DVD in the library at Wilkes Community College, these high-quality documentaries about the people of Wilkes County are now available to watch in your home or classroom, anytime. The videos were created by the Save Our Wilkes County History Committee to document, explore, and preserve the county’s past.
