Description by OLDIES.com:

For millennia, lighthouses were invaluable aids to navigation, beacons of hope and help that kept sailors form straying too close to danger or guided them back to home. But the explosion of automation has forever and fundamentally changed the nature of these vital structures, eliminating the need for lighthouse keepers and ensuring that new ones are virtually all light and no house.

SAVE OUR HISTORY tours the nation to visit surviving classic lighthouses, showing how they are being adapted to a changing world. From bed and breakfasts to environmental retreats, ingenious owners are finding a way to keep these now largely symbolic buildings standing. Experts like Frederic L. Thompson, the author of Lightships of Cape Cod, and Wayne Wheeler, the president of the U.S. Lighthouse Society, trace the long history of these beloved facilities from the time of the pharaohs to the present day, and the viewer gets an up-close look at the incredible optics that allow modern beacons to penetrate the dark for miles.

Product Description:

They lit the path to a brave new world and led the way to safe harbors as they warned of dangerous coastlines. They welcomed ships carrying precious cargo and new citizens to the fledgling country. But today many American lighthouses face grave danger. While heroic efforts by concerned preservation groups and local governments have saved some many are perilously close to being lost forever. Host Josh Binswanger looks at efforts to protect these beautiful and historic American treasures.
