Tonight we recorded the sixth edition of Breaking Bread at the NCTV studios. BB6 may be the last program recorded at the former Grass Valley Group facility since the station is undergoing a transition which involves moving to new quarters for the new year. I hosted the program in which we introduced a new one-on-one format – a conversation between the host and invited guest.
The topics that I sought to explore Sheriff Royal’s views on were the militarization of the nation’s police and sheriffs, the constitutional sheriffs movement, and Nevada County’s preparedness for large scale emergencies. The hour went well, we both felt comfortable in the conversational format, and all topics received appropriate coverage.
BB6 was hastily arranged and scheduled for tonight. Producers Terri Hicklin and Patty Smith wanted to get in one last edition of BB before NCTV had to start disassembling its studio this Friday. After some thought, I volunteered to do the program due to the apparent unavailability of any of the other hosts. The program airings will be announced on the NCTV website, and it will be archived there for later viewing on demand. The working title of BB6 is ‘A Conversation With Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal’. I will post the link when it's available.
Many thanks to the crew of all volunteers who showed up on a rainy evening to at least provide a professional effort behind the cameras. These folks make community television possible.
