A look at Mississippi from the air
The Smithsonian Channel’s engrossing Aerial America series recently aired its episode on Mississippi. It’s not a perfect or complete look at Mississippi, but it’s clear-eyed enough and worth an hour of your time.
Like the other states in the series, ours is filmed entirely from the air. A voice-over commentary by Jim Conrad runs throughout, but there are no talking heads, no cute kids eating ice cream, no blathering interviews.
