‘The Florida Keys: 200 Years of Paradise’ to Debut Nationally March 1

Wednesday, Mar 01, 2023 0


“The Florida Keys: 200 Years of Paradise, ” an hourlong television documentary that explores the history of the continental United States’ southernmost island chain, is set to debut on many Public Broadcasting Service channels across the U.S. beginning March 1.


Produced by South Florida PBS, the documentary’s nationwide airing coincides with the Florida Keys’ bicentennial year. The Florida Legislature established Monroe County, encompassing the entire 125-mile-long string of islands, on July 3, 1823.


During the program, viewers journey through the region’s dramatic history as told through the eyes of residents who live and interpret that history every day.


Topics include the Keys’ booms and busts, industries such as shipwreck salvage, cultural and artistic expression, sport fishing, community leaders, natural disasters and renewal, environmental conservation and the legacy of Black pioneers.


Commentary from Florida Keys historians and others introduces viewers to the human side of the island chain’s two centuries of history, giving the story a deeply personal resonance.


Viewers should check local listings for scheduled air dates and times.


The program is supported by Badia Spices Inc. and The Florida Keys & Key West tourism council.
