As previously reported on Patch, KCET's Highland Park doc is set to be the latest in a series that has featured historic communities throughout Los Angeles, including Chinatown, Richland Farms and Venice. The Los Angeles River has also gotten the Departures treatment from KCET.

The first installment focuses on Highland Park and Mount Washington's history, with Arroyo arts godfather getting his fair share of the spotlight. Among those interviewed are Organizer Elliot Sekuler, Friends of the Southwest Museum Coaltion member Nicole Possert and Lummis descendant Suzanne Lummis.

Future segments, which will be released every Monday for the next six weeks, will cover, among other topics, "Arroyo Culture," "The Parkway" and "The Rise of the Inner City."
