Ossabaw Island, Georgia

WGBH

Ossabaw, one of Georgia's Barrier Islands, lies seven miles south of Savannah. Only accessible by boat, the island is owned by the state and managed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

Ossabaw's wide beaches served as a striking visual backdrop for the filming of Tunis Campbell's arrival on St. Catherine's Island.

Ossabaw is an island with no land bridge, so all cameras and equipment, extras, wardrobe, props and food had to be ferried over by boat. We were rewarded on the trip by a pair of frolicking dolphins who accompanied us part of the way. --  Cathleen O'Connell, associate producer
