I am in the process of trying to get a copy of this episode.
My husband’s father played “Pappy Pete” (one of the truck drivers).
He passed away when my husband was 16, and he has since lost most
of the things that he had of his fathers. I would appreciate any
help that would help in my search for a copy of this episode.

2.16 [38] Movin' On: THE OLD SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN
6Jan76 NBC Tue
Feedback:
Back in 1976 when the episode "The Old South Will Rise Again" was filmed, a portion of it was filmed in the back
parking lot at Six Flags Over Ga. I was there along with two friends. We were used as extras in the scenes and I have
been trying to locate a copy of this episode. I am hoping you can help me. There is one scene where the camera is
filming the crowd as we are supposedly looking up into the air at the hot air balloons, (of course there was nothing
in the air), but at one point I was determined to get on camera, so before the scene was shot, I moved to front center
for the camera. I am the guy in the t shirt that has on it, "baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet", which was
Chevrolet's slogan back then. I saw the episode once when it aired and never again. It really means a lot to me to get
a copy of this episode. That is the only episode I really want. Can you folks help me? Can you instruct me who to contact
if you are unable to help me? Please e mail me with any info, or even to tell me you cannot help me at least so I won't
be waiting indefinitely. Thank You.
