A documentary on the country's water resources by an Eastern Illinois University faculty member and four students will be previewed on campus before showing on the campus' PBS TV station.

According to a release from Eastern Illinois, a half-hour preview of "Expedition Endurance" will be shown at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Buzzard Building auditorium on campus. That will include a question-and-answer session with faculty member Cameron Craig and students Nathan Page, Darius Holland, Aric Ascot Pelafas and Jay Bushen.

WEIU-TV will begin showing the entire documentary in November. The first will be Nov. 5.

Craig and the students filmed the documentary over an 11-day trip that covered almost 5,000 miles in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona and other states.
