Bright Sunday
21 April 2019 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

This is another favorite document show of mine and another childhood gem of mine as I saw this show when I was six. I remember whenever I got up early on Sunday in the morning before having breakfast and going to church, I would turn the TV on and run into this program, once I heard that trumpet theme it got me drawn in. I also remember this show is one of the shows that inspired me into getting into the journalism field, to find and produce more positive stories like this show and if possible, somewhere along the line host this show. I know long shot but hey a guy can dream.

I'm personally not one that normally watches news programs, let alone documentary programs, as I said before it depends on the subject matter. This show was one of the only excepts I made because of one thing, it's good because there is news worth watching.

That theme song is great, it's one of my favorite themes of all time, just that big trumpet music just sings the rising sun and the bright beautiful morning. I really like the set pieces, which was always an interesting look, from that diagonal desk which sort of looks like a prop stand for orcastratic music for their music.

But it was those glass walls on the stages that always caught my eye as they always had so many word graphics but also the titles for the stories of the day. I remember always wondering about what the rest of those words on some of the walls the host visited said or would sometimes look to the sides, up or down to know what the rest of those words are.

There are also those photographic images on the commercial breaks which I thought where interesting as they always display a scenery of nature or even a work of art. I thought it was a nice touch just to address how there truly is beauty all around us.

Really liked the hosts mainly the late great Charles Kuralt whom always had this gentle, series but positive tone to him. Really like how he always had this positive outlook on life which is part of what made each of the stories he presented memorable. And of course, there have been some other hosts over the years whom are good in their own way, but Charles to me is still the best one of the series.

What really made the show unique is each of the stories were about America but the positive side of it. From the arts, what programs people run and are involved with in the community, a certain sight in America to visit, entertainers of yesteryear, just any other positive subject and story you can think of. Seeing and hearing each of those stories I'll admit really made me think of actually taking a road trip or two to some of the places presented.

Each of the stories just really gave a sense of community as most of the people interviewed are ones with bright outlooks on life, want to make the country better or just simply people living life with joy let alone doing what they do best in life and with love. But most importantly this show just gave you a good feeling inside and makes you proud your living in America but also increases you sense of wonder.

After sunset there is always sunrise.
