                  A half century ago, there were two hundred year-round settlements on Maine's coastal islands. Today there are a mere fourteen.

Narrated by former NBC News correspondent and A&E "Biography" host Jack Perkins, "A Sense of Place, a Sense of Time" looks at the elements --...

Whether in search of the ocean's bounty or in the service of trade, past these beacons the ships bravely went, their crews comforted by the thought that the lights would be there upon their return, guiding the way home. This special documentary tells...
