Louisiana's Lucky Clover: A Century of 4-H, a half-hour TV documentary, will be broadcast for the first time on Louisiana Public Broadcasting and its affiliate stations on March 12 at 7:40 p.m.

Produced by the LSU AgCenter, the documentary tracks the formation and development of this youth organization from the first “corn club” in Avoyelles Parish in 1908 to today's vast network of clubs and projects across the state that involved about 225,000 young people in 2007, according to Paul Coreil, vice chancellor and director of the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service.

The documentary uses rare photographs and film footage to guide viewers through the history, which includes many stories people today may not realize, said Mark Tassin, director of the LSU AgCenter 4-H and youth development program.

This documentary includes clips from interviews with more than 30 people, said Randy LaBauve, LSU AgCenter communications specialist and the documentary's producer.
