Hit and Run History: Continuing the Cape Cod storytelling tradition

Two-Time Emmy-nominated producer Andrew Giles Buckley is an 11th generation Cape Codder who has traveled the world with his local crew of filmmakers to uncover stories from history you may not have learned in high school. These Gumshoe Historians created an accessible approach just as online media was taking off, and have been awarded two grants from the Mass Foundation for the humanities and scores of local Massachusetts Cultural Council grants from across the Commonwealth. Buckley’s latest venture, Stephano: The True Story of Shakespeare’s Shipwreck, is running on local PBS stations across the country.
