A program that aired this past Sunday on the Smithsonian Channel tried to capture the majesty of the 49th state. Toby Beach is the producer and director of Aerial America. The show features all 50 states, but only Alaska was given a two hour treatment rather than one. Beach says the program cuts through the distorted view of Alaska that people may get from the flood of so-called reality TV shows about the state.
Here are a couple of the previews released so far. You can find out more about the shot at Smithsonian Channel.com.

- The Juneau Assembly will be asked next week to approve $3.06 million in pay increases for employees at Bartlett Regional Hospital.
