I recently discovered that KOCE-TV has posted The Story of Orange County on YouTube. This series was created for the County's centennial in 1989, and features an interesting mix of historians and other experts. Here are the segments, in order:
Episode One: "Birth of a County"
- Part 1: With Paul Apodaca, Norman Neuerburg and Harry Francisco
- Part 2: With Bernardo Yorba, Tony Forster, Richard J. O'Neill, Tony Moiso & Florence Mitchell
- Part 3: With Steve Donaldson, Glenn Dumke & Pam Hallan-Gibson
Episode Two: "Dawn of a New Era"
