The first sentimental production for Sentimental Productions was created as a one-hour television special in 1988, the year Delaney Communications, Inc. began. Titled The Unsinkable Delta Queen, it's the entertaining story of the Delta Queen Steamboat and was produced to commemorate the river heritage of Cincinnati during the city's Bicentennial Celebration.
Soon, under the trade name Sentimental Productions, we were producing
more and more entertaining and informative videos capturing the
heritage, culture and music of America.
Now, after more than 60 subsequent programs, we continue to broadly fix our gaze on America: In Story, Scenery and Song.
Our love for story telling is expressed four times each year in Sentimental Reflections,
our quarterly video magazine. Each 45-minute edition blends our three
The stories range from John Glenn's historic space flight to a
visit to an Apple Festival in Nebraska.
The Scenic America installment each quarter presents terrific scenery from across the United States. And On A Musical Note is an entertaining segment with a wide variety of musical styles and performances.
We also have three other distinct video series. The Unsinkable Delta Queen is part of the Americana Series, which also includes The Signs & Rhymes of Burma-Shave, Roadsters, Rumbleseats & Country Drives and Dream Trains, Short Hops & Whistle Stops.
The Sentimental Sing-Along Collection includes 20 separate
volumes with lively performances of classic and memorable songs that
have been sung by generations of Americans.
Our newest series is called Sentimental Serenity. There are
now four videos exploring some of the best scenery in the nation. We've
designed these DVDs so viewers can choose to simply soak in the beauty
of the landscapes with relaxing music, or opt for the narrative which
offers a brief commentary for the locations featured in each video.
