Branson Missouri
Produced by: Dan Collison
You may have heard of Branson, Missouri -- the small town that calls itself the country music capital of the world. Branson is home base for such aging country and pop stars as Mickey Gilley, Roy Clark, Wayne Newton, Tony Orlando, Charlie Pride and Box Car Willie. With a population of 5,000, Branson boasts over 50,000 theater seats more than on Broadway), four times more motel rooms than residents, and scores of restaurants. The "Branson Boom," as it is called, happened virtually overnight. But the "boom" has not been without casualties. We travel to Branson to discover how and why the town went from relative obscurity to entertainment mecca and the social and economic implications of such rapid growth for the community and ts residents.
