A lot of people love old barns and this program is the first in what Tom plans to be a series on the subject. "Getting the first one done is the hardest...", he said "...and with that done and being so successful I'm now working on "Barns of the Midwest". I want to just keep on going across the country---there are many marvelous barn stories out there.".

After the success of the first old barns program Tom was able to follow up with a second show, "American Barn Stories and Other Tales From the Heartlands". Again completed with the editing help of Wisconsin Public Television the program tries to motivate those with old barns to save them if at all possible and offers insights on how to proceed and who to talk to about it all. The effort to spark a national series about our old barns continues while the search for an appropriate sponsor goes on.

"I've always had a fascination with small town history and was really satisfied with this script. It stands as an excellent example of my writing skills and saw air in many PBS markets around the country. It also did quite well in classrooms and senior centers...", says Tom, "...and viewers can look for a much bigger national budget history project to hit sometime in the coming year."
