Moments In History
on Channel 15 in Rutland

In September of 2010 PEG-TV’s Channel 15 began a weekly television news magazine entitled “Access”.  The Rutland Historical Society was invited to provide a two or three minute historical moment for each weekly program.  With the cooperation of PEG – TV the Rutland Historical Society has been able to provide an archive of back moments from “Moments in History”.

The “Access” News Magazine has changed some of its format and “Moments in History” will no longer be viewable there. The 136 episodes seen here will complete the series.
