The misunderstandings relative to videotaping Thursday evening's Mark
Twain at Lake Tahoe in 1861 debate have been resolved. This is the evening when
David Antonucci and Robert Stewart debate the location of the Clemens
timber claim and campsite at the Lake, which is the subject of two chapters in
Roughing It. The debate will occur on the grounds of the Gatekeeper's House
Museum in Tahoe City on Thursday, June 21.
The videotaping of the debate will be done by an independent contractor
who has been encouraged, but not contracted, by KNPB, the University of
Nevada television station in Reno which shows PBS broadcasting. Footage from the
debate evening may or may not be included in the documentary, a decision
to be made by the videographers and editors.
There is consideration by the independent videographers of videotaping the
entire program, which is expected to last about one hour, to produce a
program for use by the Museum.
