Summary
A 6 Oct. 1962 episode of the WRVA Radio program Profile, summarizing the proceedings of a hearing on the question of whether to deepen the James River from Richmond to Hampton Roads. The hearing, held in Richmond, was the fourth in a series of five taking place in various cities. Host Herbie Hollins, WRVA's business editor, plays a number of clips from the hearing including remarks by Richmond, Henrico County, and Chesterfield County officials, a Wharton School of Finance and Commerce consultant, and concerned citizens from the Hampton Roads area. At issue were the potential effects the action would have, chiefly on commercial interests in the affected regions, but also on scenery and recreational pursuits. The program was sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield, and features two advertising spots for their services
