Inecom Entertainment Company, producers of "Johnstown Flood" narrated by Academy Award(R) winner Richard Dreyfuss, announced that public television stations are once again broadcasting the film to mark the 116th anniversary of the flood. Distributed internationally since its release in 2003, the DVD of the film sells at video stores, Internet retailers, educational and institutional distributors and large retail chains such as Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Borders and Wal-Mart.

Presented by Penn State Public Broadcasting (PSPB) and distributed by American Public Television (APT), "Johnstown Flood" recreates the event through documented and illustrated first-hand accounts from survivors.

"We're pleased with the response to `Johnstown Flood' since its first presentation on public television stations in 2003," said Greg Petersen, Director of Programming Services for Penn State Public Broadcasting (PSPB). "Inecom Entertainment Company films feature a level of quality that we are happy to be associated with."

Producer/Director Mark Bussler, who recently completed "EXPO - Magic of the White City" narrated by Gene Wilder, said, "Richard Dreyfuss captures the tragedy of the flood as Johnstown, Pennsylvania was transformed from a bustling industrial city into a wasteland."

The "Johnstown Flood" DVD special features include an interview with Richard Burkert, Executive Director of the Johnstown Area Heritage Association. In addition, the DVD features "The Johnstown Flood," a piano illustration (1889) by Alberto Rivieri, performed by Patricia Prattis Jennings of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
