Nearly forty years after he left office and thirty years after his death, Oregon Governor Tom McCall remains one of the state's most renowned political figures. He envisioned a quality of environment and life unique to Oregon and he worked relentlessly to protect those values. McCall's bold achievements set a new standard for the rest of the nation. The Beach Bill and the Bottle Bill, the SB100 land-use law, the Willamette River cleanup and the reinvention of Portland's waterfront — all of these emerged from the McCall years. This new one-hour episode of Oregon Experience: Tom McCall explores the man who helped shape the "Oregon" that we know today.

The program was written and produced by Eric Cain and edited by Lisa Suinn Kallem. It premieres on OPB on Tuesday, March 19 at 8pm. Doors at 5:30, screening at 6:30.
