An amazing view of a "real family" -- I guess they were reality TV's FIRST family (before there e'en was "reality" TV). Priour to the Louds, the Duggars (sp?) or the Gosselins, the Dukes showed "reality" by just being real. No camera-ready drama, just the e'eryday workings of a very large family who really seemed to love one another (and still do).
This is a family of whom I'm sure many would love to see a "where-are-they-now" special. Sadness on Bill's passing but last I heard Louise is still very active and still living in the family home. I know Bobbi is STILL married to Gene. Ironically, I think most of the Dukes children only had a couple of kids themselves -- that's still a LOT of grands and great-grands for Louise.
MANY thanks to Mr. Wolper and the Dukes family for an amazing programme!
I wonder how much the Dukes and their lifestyle inspired the Waltons...
