The Shakers On Television

Programs originally telecast between 1966 and 1991, including rare interviews with Shaker members. The Shakers are America's oldest religious communal society and first arrived here in 1774. They can trace their roots back to 18th century England in the Manchester area.


The first program on this DVD is a thirty minute black & white television program from 1966. It is believed to be the earliest telecast about the Shakers with highlights from the Shaker Village Work Group (or Work Camp), a summer program for teenagers in New Lebanon, New York. The program also includes a brief interview with
Sister Mildred Barker from Sabbathday Lake, Maine [shown in picture - © 1983. Gail Hall, photographer].

Other television segments include interviews with Eldress Bertha Lindsay at Canterbury, New Hampshire; and Sister Mildred Barker, Sister Frances Carr, Brother Arnold Hadd at Sabbathday Lake, Maine.

Most of these programs are rare and hard-to-find anywhere else. This DVD is for educational, non-commercial use only and available by donation.

Note: This DVD is no longer available,
but two of the television programs (1966, 1986)
are included on the deluxe multi-media DVD,
