MainStreet - Wild Cave Tour at Mammoth Cave National Park
WKU PBS had produced a piece on the Wild Cave Tour several years ago, but since beginning to broadcast in HD, we figured this was one place that definitely deserved a re-visit. We loaded up two vans worth of our production students, promising them a day of adventure, and then put them in jumpsuits, and sent them into the cave. We lit the entire piece using LEDz LED lights that we ran off batteries, and then had fun telling the students to get as muddy as possible!

Mammoth Cave, Kentucky: The Long Tour (4.5 miles), September 2010
I had shot this almost four years ago; I hadn't thought to put it up until today's sinkhole collapse at the Corvette Museum. I hadn't known that the system of caves in Kentucky that Mammoth is a part of extends across a good portion of the area, even under Bowling Green.
It was never taught to me in U.S. history in school, and I'm glad they're teaching it now on the tours: the first guides at Mammoth Cave were black slaves, among them Steven Bishop.
If this video seems long at 15 minutes, the actual tour took over 2 hours.
Mammoth Cave Virtual Tour
This accompanies a 3D virtual tour that is on here as well. However, if you do not have 3D glasses for your class, this tour is just as good with sound effects and everything. You can talk over it if you like and explain as much or as little as you like. 2-3 minutes long. Great for young students with short attention spans. :)
