It was a busy day of filming that drove home two key points. First, this is a network of dedicated people that makes this happen- it takes a community. There are a whole lot of people involved and working to improve our environment.
Curt Felix showed them around the oyster propagation zone in Wellfleet.
Our shell recycling coordinator Theresa Baybutt showed them various pick-up locations from around Boston.

Erik Levy of Save-that-Stuff showed them around his Charlestown facility. Our main contact there- Eliana Blaine was away at the time.

Chef Mark Sapienza of the Langham Hotel talked about their green initiatives. (We recently honored him for his support of shell recycling.)

Here is a photo of the TV star dining on some choice oysters.

And Dale Leavitt of Roger Williams University in Bristol Rhode Island showed them around his hatchery.
The second conclusion is that it is a lot of work lining up the perfect shot.
Here is a link to the final program. http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/mv/nms/ny/post_84838/ It is a fine product and may inspire some of the millions of viewers in Japan to start a program of their own.
