Following its successful original airings on ESPN during the summer of 2007, the producers of “The Palestra: Cathedral of Basketball” - a historic documentary that traces the evolution of college basketball through the rise of the most storied arena in the country are excited to announce the release of their Special Collector’s Edition DVD. As seen on ESPN with extended scenes and bonus features, discover how The Palestra became the stamping ground for the game that captured the heart of America, and how its majestic influence would ultimately diminish as the very sport it had nurtured would blossom into lavish and high-priced popularity.
Eight decades in the most hallowed halls of college hoops is illuminated through never-before-seen historical footage, the majestic voice-over talents of NFL Film's Harry Kalas, and interviews with college basketball's most noted figures, such as NBA great Bill Bradley; Naismith Hall of Fame Coaches Chuck Daly, Dr. Jack Ramsay and John Chaney; best-selling sports author John Feinstein; and, CBS/ESPN analyst Bill Raftery.
The DVD is currently on sale in the DVD section of the official online store of PennAthletics.com. Buy Now
