In partnership with...

VBRP on Public Radio

On this yearís anniversary of the Battle of Valcour Island, North Country Public Radio reporter Brian Mann joined Valcour Bay Research Project divers Ed Scollon and Craig Allen for an underwater tour of the archaeological survey site. Wearing a special mask equipped with a microphone, Ed Scollon narrated their dive.

Brian Mannís interview and portions of Edís narration later aired on a news segment of a North Country Public Radio broadcast. Brianís news story can be accessed through this North Country Public Radio audio file that is approximately 6 Ĺ minutes in length: http://www.northcountrypublicradio.org/news/archive.php?id=4878 .

An abridged version of Brianís story later ran as an ďAudio PostcardĒ on a national broadcast of the National Public Radio show All Things Considered. This version is approximately 3 Ĺ minutes in length: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4124133.
