How do you document relocating the world’s largest brick lighthouse? WRAL did it with nine award winning photographers who traveled to Hatteras Island located on the Outer Banks off the coast of North Carolina. WRAL rented a cottage, rotated photographers so video could be shot on a daily basis for six months.
WRAL made a deal with the National Park Service to document this amazing feat of engineering in American history. The agreement allowed WRAL’s news photographers complete access to the work site. They interviewed and followed engineers and construction workers as they moved the Cape Hatteras lighthouse back from the edge of the coast. The result was 93 hours of recorded video tape that was edited into news stories and a documentary.
Watch and listen to the photographers tell their stories of working this historic assignment. News photographers: Richard Atkins, Terry Cantrell, Jay Jennings, Joe Frieda, Ed Wilson, John Cox, Mark Copeland, David Renner, Gil Hollingsworth. WRAL News anchor/reporter Bill Leslie is the reporter.
