Virtual Tours

The SCETV American Graduate Youth Media Institute focused on health and community engagement. Students used their video and reporting skills to create short documentaries on healthy food, farms and gardens. By focusing on sustainable food production and nutrition, the Youth Media Institute helped students make the connection between a healthy lifestyle and their own educations.

SCETV’s immersive transmedia website showcasing the culture and history of Hobcaw Barony, a 16,000 acre historic site on the coast of South Carolina. Located between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, Hobcaw is a crossroads representing every era of human history, providing a lens through which many threads of the nation’s story may be examined. Visitors to the Between the Waters website take a self-directed virtual tour of Hobcaw Barony, moving down the roads and rice canals, entering slave dwellings and grand houses, watching videos, examining photographs, and listening to historians and the first-person stories of former residents and relatives.

Our great state is known for many wonderful places, rich cultural traditions, beautiful and unique flora and fauna, and the source of a variety of products found nowhere else in the nation. This Carolina Stories special takes a lighthearted look at favorite places and homegrown things, spanning the alphabet to showcase all that South Carolina has to offer.

Series of stories gathered from around the state of South Carolina. From the mountains to the sea, South Carolina has so much to offer residents and visitors alike. ETV Shorts spotlights the beautiful state of South Carolina and highlights some amazing people.

The series explores science and integrates technology, while focusing on various careers. The videos are less than 10 minutes and are filmed through the eyes of the cameraman, D.V.

Virtual reality tours of some of South Carolina’s most interesting historical sites on your desktop computer or the Matterport App. Each tour includes an overview video and photo gallery.

The history of the Lexington County Courthouse is told over its first 200 years. 

We could do a million stories on the beauty of this state. From the rolling mountains of the Upstate to the beautiful seas of the Lowcountry. Our state is truly unique, but what really makes South Carolina sweet is its amazing people. This series features stories of everyday South Carolinians living, working and experiencing all that the Palmetto State has to offer.  The series is a part of PBS Digital Studios. 

Created using the dramatizations produced as part of The Palmetto Special series. Events, people and places that shaped our state’s history are shared through updated introduction segments with two young-adult hosts interwoven with re-purposed dramatizations that tell many of South Carolina’s important stories. Produced by South Carolina Department of Education and ETV, these can be used as a resource in the study of South Carolina history on middle and high school grade levels. 

Video vignettes that characterize the natural, cultural, and agricultural landscapes of the Pee Dee region of South Carolina. Pee Dee Explorer is divided into chapters that provide various contexts for telling the story of the region. Each chapter contains a collection of video stories and accompanying text, based on well-known and "off the beaten path" landmarks found in the Pee Dee.

Edited versions from the popular live, interactive PROJECT DISCOVERY series. The condensed programs are hosted by students and feature the best on-site segments from the original program.

Designed to help teachers and students to learn about the people and the events, and the importance of the civil rights movement in South Carolina from the 1940s to the early 1970s.

Series that explored the architectural and cultural heritage of South Carolina's small towns and countryside. Host Joanna Angle explores historic houses, public buildings, and country stores, and talks with local artists, painters, sculptors, weavers, writers, storytellers, and musicians.

Rivers touch some aspect of our lives every day, quietly serving a need for drinking water, farming, power, industry and recreation. Educator Ian Sanchez kayaked from the mountains to the sea, making connections between our cultural and natural landscapes, and providing an inspiring look at his special brand of outreach and environmental education. Follow along and gain insight into how rivers, landforms and landscapes of South Carolina shape who we are, where we live and why we live there...

Focusing The Universe




L. Casey Manning, Sr. was born in Dillon, S.C. in 1950 to Paul and Harnethea Manning. In high school, Manning was named All-American, AAA Player of the Year in 1969, and listed among the “Who’s Who” in high schools for his basketball skills.

This level of success led him to be the first African American scholarship recipient to play basketball at the University of South Carolina, after multiple offers from many schools. While a college athlete, he received the Freshman Academic Award, was listed among the “Who’s Who” in colleges, and earned the Outstanding Senior Award. Manning completed a bachelor’s in Political Science and History in 1973, and then went on to earn his Juris Doctorate at the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1977.

He has had a celebrated career in law and was elected to Fifth Judicial Court as Circuit Court

Judge by the South Carolina General Assembly in 1994. Manning has received many honors such as the Richland County Bar Association’s Matthew J. Perry Civility Award in 2002, South Carolina Association of Justice’s Outstanding Contribution to Justice Award in 2006, American Board of Trial Advocates Award in 2011, and the South Carolina Supreme Court’s G. Dewey Oxner, Jr. Lawyer Mentoring Award in 2015.

His athletic career is still widely commemorated, and he remains involved in athletics as the radio color analyst for South Carolina men’s basketball games since 1993 and a former president of the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame.

In 2012, he received the University of South Carolina’s Richard T. Greener Excellence in Athletics Award. In 2018, Manning was inducted into the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame. He resides in Columbia with his family.
