PBS SoCaL is proud to present the premiere of “Buried History”, in which host Mark Walberg travels to small-town America in a vintage hearse to unearth the past. Starting with the tombstones of those integral to the birth of a city to their present-day descendants, he’ll piece together the clues about each town’s genealogy. Generations of history are packed into this half hour filled with facts, folklore, legend, and scandal. Revealed will be the intimate story of how luck, misfortune or bizarre circumstance played an important role in shaping that city. Every town has a story... you just have to know where to dig.
