Series Credits

The Lost Sea Expedition is the story of a solo mule wagon voyage across America. Because mule Polly and I (Bernie Harberts) traveled alone, without a film crew or chase vehicle,  it took a lot of people and communities to turn the experience in to a series for Public Television. This is where we thank them. The credit list is ongoing. If you were part of the Lost Sea Expedition series and didn’t find yourself on the list (hey, some days I forgot to hook Polly’s traces chains too…) then drop us a line.

Bernie's boot used a tripod.
Some things you can improvise, even do alone, like filming. For other things, like weaving that footage into a great TV series….? Well, that takes lots of help from other people.

And if you don’t see your name here…

Oops. I was so busy filming and editing the Lost Sea Expedition that I’m sure I forgot to thank a few folks that helped me along the way.

Are you one of those folks?  Just drop me a line.  I’ll have mule Polly set the record straight.
