Hudson River Journeys. This video is a 2004 American Public Television exploration of "America's first river," through the eyes of artist Len Tantillo and folk singer Pete Seeger. History comes alive through Tantillo's detailed paintings, and those of 19th-century Hudson River School painters who helped shape the mythos of the American landscape. Hudson River Journeys is an intimate view into the mystique of the river. The program presents a breathtaking look at the Hudson today, celebrating its natural splendor through beautiful scenic vistas captured during each of the four seasons. The documentary is a passionate look at the dedicated people who have made the Hudson River what it is today, and those who are striving to preserve it for the future.

This video traces Church's career from his early studies in the Catskills and the Hudson River Valley with the eminent landscape painter Thomas Cole. The program continues through Church's maturity when his grand, all-encompassing paintings of the great natural wonders of the Americas made him one of the nation's most celebrated landscape painters of the 19th century. The program includes live footage of the Catskills and of Church's "final work of art," Olana, his house overlooking the Hudson River. Paintings shown include New England Scenery (1851), Niagara (1857), Heart of the Andes (1859), Icebergs (1861), Twilight in the Wilderness (1860), Cotopaxi (1862), Parthenon (1871), and Morning in the Tropics (1877).

Richard Mayhew: Spiritual Landscapes is a 28 minute L&S video created and produced by Linda Freeman and witten and directed by David Irving. Richard Mayhew paints landscapes. These images have taken root within the the artist's inner spirit and are expressed through oil paint on canvas and watercolor on paper. The landscapes never depict a specific place, but capture a poetic feeling about the land. Are they abstracts? Are they impressions? Are they expressions? Are they landscapes? Only you the viewer, in concert with the artist, can say for sure. ISBN 1-882660-15-3
