The Vault, WSMV-Channel 4

You'd think the smash success of NPT's "Memories of Nashville" documentaries would have shown Nashville's news channels what a goldmine they have stashed away in their archives. Yet one local news outfit a few years back reportedly chucked hundreds of hours of tapes in the trash because it needed the space. One person who sees the value of that footage is WSMV anchor and documentary filmmaker Demetria Kalodimos, who has pitched a series called The Vault that would revisit events and eras from Nashville history using the station's treasure trove of period footage. If WSMV has any reservations about the show's appeal, tell 'em to tune in NPT on pledge-drive night. JIM RIDLEY
