1982 | WAGA-TV
Photographer George Gentry has captured on film the magnificence of one of Georgia’s most beautiful barrier islands. At the same time, Don Smith and Forrest Sawyer teamed up to produce a telling documentary which examined the pros and cons of a National Park Service’s decision to increase the visiting limits for Cumberland Island from 300 to 1400 persons per day. Thus, viewers of WAGA-TV’s Paradise Saved were treated to a quality of visual beauty not often seen on television and, at the same time, were informed, enlightened, and challenged concerning the problems of retaining a great natural heritage and a diminishing resource—the unspoiled beauty of the Atlantic Coast.
