    KCTS PRODUCTIONS: OVER ALASKA PART 3 OF 3

    -Locations Shot in Over Alaska-

    Over Alaska leads viewers on magnificent sights ranging from the unbelievably blue ice of Tracy Arm Fjord, to the active volcanic peak of Mount Redoubt, to the primeval splendor of the state's coastal rain forest. Other highlights include:


    * Mt. McKinley, North America's tallest peak

    * The pristine, icebound landscapes of Kenai Fjords National Park, on the southeastern Kenai Peninsula

    * The Katmai Peninsula's Brooks Falls, where brown bears come to feast on salmon in high summer

    * The Inside Passage, with its green waterways and forested islands — "the most exhilarating stretch of water on the American West Coast"

    * The Alaska Highway, built during World War II in order to protect U.S. soil from Japanese invasion

    * The Iditarod, the world's longest dog sled race (Martin Buser, who placed first in the 2002 Iditarod, is filmed)

    * The Killer Whale Dance Group of the Metlakatla Tribe on remote Annette Island

    * A flight with famed Alaskan bush pilot Paul Claus among the mountains and rock spires of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park

    * The Copper River Delta, where millions of shorebirds and water fowl converge every May and September

    * Admiralty Island's Native community of Angoon, where Tlingit traditions live on

    * Kennecott Historic towns: The abandoned mining settlement of Kennecott, largest ghost town in the United States and a National Historic Landmark; the onetime Russian outpost of Sitka; quaint Skagway and the old-fashioned steam train that transports visitors to and from the former gold rush settlement

    * Cities: Anchorage, Alaska's largest city and home to approximately half of the state's residents; the capital city of Juneau, captured beneath a Fourth of July fireworks display
