The Waltons is one of the most cherished family drama in the history of television. Since the premiere of the television series in 1972 it has won many awards and it has been received very well by the public. I am very pleased to bring to you a "Tribute To The Waltons" which are episodes featuring interviews that have been done this year, of 2010 with many of the cast members from the beloved Waltons series from the 1970s and early 1980s. I hope that you learn and gain some insight directly from the cast as they share their stories about being a part of one of America's most loved watched family drama. Several of these shows were recorded not only by Aaron Pacentine but also his friend Ryan Littley from Michigan. Thanks Ryan for your help in the production of this series!!
The show was created by Earl Hammer Jr. and Lorimar Productions and distributed by Warner Brothers.
The show takes place in Walton's Mountain, a fictional town in Virginia. Walton's Mountain was based upon creator Earl Hamner's hometown of Schuyler in Nelson County south of Charlottesville, Virginia. His family and the community provided many life experiences which aided in the characters, values, area, and human-interest stories of his books, movies, and television series. While Walton's Mountain itself is fictional, Schuyler and surrounding area bear a striking resemblance. A museum is located in a former school building in Schuyler.
Warner Home Video has released all nine seasons and all six of TV movies of The Waltons on DVD in Region 1. Seasons 1-4 have been released in Region 2. The pilot movie, The Homecoming: A Christmas Story, was released by Paramount Home Entertainment. Lorimar Productions produced the series, CBS produced the pilot film, which is why Paramount, under CBS Home Entertainment, handles home video rights for The Homecoming.
It currently airs on Hallmark Channel in the US, in
the United Kingdom and also part of Canada.
