      **Alabama Experience: Bridges to the Past
      Times this episode will air on APT:
      Sunday, July 23, 2006 at 12:30PM
      Covered bridges served vital needs in the days of horse drawn
      transportation. Today they provide picturesque recreational attractions
      that give visitors insight into how people lived in the past. "Bridges
      to the Past" will document Alabama's eleven remaining historic covered
      bridges that are open to the public. All were built from 1850 through
      the 1930s. A few are still in use for motor traffic today, but most are
      limited to foot traffic.

      **Discovering Alabama: Fort Morgan
      Times this episode will air on APT:
      Sunday, July 23, 2006 at 1:00PM
      Visit historic Fort Morgan and witness an active archaeological dig,
      take a trek through an ancient maritime forest and witness the capture,
      banding, and release of migratory birds. Dr. Phillips talks to local
      residents in presenting the past and considering the future of Fort
      Morgan Peninsula, one of Alabama's best coastal wonders.
