Welcome to the NatureScene guide at TV Tome. From 1978 to 2002, NatureScene was the most pleasant nature series ever to appear on public television. The South Carolina ETV Commission had initially produced the series as a local program, bringing South Carolina ciewers closer to the varied natural wonders of the State. By 1985, NatureScene was being syndicated throughout America, as hosts Jim Welch and Rudy Mancke went on nature journeys across the continent. They examined Costa Rican rain forests, islands ravaged by hurricanes, and city lots. You name it, they presented it in a pleasant format, augmented by the soothing pastoral music heard throughout each episode.
