Print Article

MISSOULA — MontanaPBS producers hit the road again to highlight stories throughout the state in the latest episode of “Backroads of Montana,” set to air at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6.

On the award-winning travelogue’s new episode, titled “Rich with Tradition,” MontanaPBS unravels a Montana curiosity steeped in legend and myth. “Backroads” visits Virginia City for the final chapter in one of Montana’s infamous legends — “Clubfoot” George Lane.

“Backroads” then follows a Montana family on their adventure through a corn maze near Bozeman. The Bos farm carves a fanciful design out of a two-and-a-half acre corn field that makes people scratch their heads but come out smiling.

Viewers will fill up on the delightful delicacies from the Windmill Village Bakery in Ravalli. Nancy and David Martin have taken a secret family donut recipe and made it hard for anyone to drive past their bakery without stopping for a treat.

“Backroads” profiles a Glasgow man who has changed careers and found success. Ben Boreson used his 30 years as a mechanic to creatively transform his garage into the Busted Knuckle Brewery, which sports a uniquely automotive design for folks to sample his brews.

William Marcus will host the program from the Stonehenge Air Museum near Fortine. In addition to a full-scale replica of Stonehenge, the museum boasts a wide variety of vintage aircraft, including the interesting “Inflatoplane.”

“We have more surprises and more mysteries on this episode,” Marcus said. “We hope viewers will come along for the ride.”

MontanaPBS (KUFM-TV in Missoula, KUSM-TV in Bozeman, KUKL-TV in Kalispell, KBGS-TV in Billings, KUGF-TV in Great Falls and KUHM-TV in Helena) is a service of the University of Montana and Montana State University. For more information, visit http://www.montanapbs.org.
