Bothell produces historical video

Bothell has announced the completion of its first historical video called "Bothell: A Sense of Time and Place."
   It's a 26-minute, historical video capturing moments that built the city. It is a video designed as an educational tool covering Bothell's heritage.
   The video premieres on Bothell Community Television (BCTV) Channel 21 and will air daily at noon and 9 p.m.
   Bothell AT&T Broadband cable customers who live within the city of Bothell limits have access to the 24-hour government cable channel. Also, the Bothell Community Development Department will have the video available for check out, and it will be shown in local schools and libraries in the future.
   If citizens are interested in viewing "Bothell: A Sense of Time and Place" and do not have access to BCTV Channel 21, they should contact Bothell Community Planning Manager Gary Hasseler at (425) 486-8152.
   "The city is excited to share this educational video with our community," said Gary Hasseler, Bothell community planning manager and project lead.
   "This project is a shining example of the excellence that the city and volunteers can achieve together. That's what our community is all about."
   The video was produced by Camera One, a Seattle production company and the city of Bothell Landmark Preservation Board.
   The video production began in 1998 and was partially funded through a $6,500 grant from King County's Landmarks and Heritage Program and also from general funds from the city of Bothell's Community Development Department. Total production costs were approximately $21,000.
   Along with well-preserved photos, film and facts, the video provides fun trivia such as the fact that Bothell formerly held world records for the tallest Christmas tree, the biggest apple pie, and the longest hot dog.
