      • Opening Narration: This is Earl Hamner. When I was growing up in the hills of Virginia during the Great Depression, I would never have believed that I would some day end up in a studio in Hollywood, telling the story of my life on television. As a matter of fact, television as we know it today didn't even exist. We grew up here, in this house, where my mother still lives. From the earliest times I can remember I wanted to be a writer. I was told that to be a good writer one should write about what he cares for most passionately. That was my family, and I wrote about them in my novel Spencer's Mountain, and in a later novel, The Homecoming. Spencer's Mountain became a film, and The Homecoming became a Lorimar/CBS television special in 1971. From the special grew the series, The Waltons, which premiered in the fall of 1972. Since then we've covered ten years: a decade of The Waltons. On this special program we'll visit my home town where it all began, meet my mother, my brothers and sisters, and the actors who have portrayed them all these years. Stay with us for the next two hours for a visit to two fairly dissimilar towns: Hollywood, California, and Schyler, Virginia, and a fond look back at a decade of The Waltons.

      • Closing Narration: Someone once asked my sister Marion where Walton's Mountain is, and she said it is somewhere my brother was very happy. We've been happy here, and I hope that in the past eight years we've entertained you, that we've enriched your lives in some small way, and that whenever possible we've made some small affirmative statement about us as a people and about people as a part of all mankind.
