"The Sprawling of America" is a two-hour documentary examining the social,
political and economic causes of sprawl and urban decline.  It is produced
for public television by the Great Lakes Television Consortium, a subset of
the University of Michigan's public radio system.  Significant support for
the project came from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

"Inner City Blues" is part one of the series.  It describes how public
investment changed the pattern of development in Michigan, beginning the
cycle of sprawl that we are fighting today.  Part two, "The Fat of the
Land", describes Detroit's subsidization of part of the infrastructure for
sprawl and techniques other communities are now using to combat unmanaged
growth.

The video can be seen on public television stations across the state, viewed
online for free or purchased for home ownership for a mere $40!  Check out
www.gltv.org for more information, including show times across Michigan and
ordering informatino.
