Ken Burns, filmmaker and master documentarian of all things American (The Civil War, Baseball, Jazz, Brooklyn Bridge, The Congress, The Statue of Liberty) has a brand new film debuting on PBS this fall. This time out, Burns has set his sights on America’s National Park Service in his film entitled The National Parks: America’s Best Idea. The film is airing currently, but if you don’t have a TV, missed an episode, or just want to watch it at your leisure, you can view the entire film online at the PBS website. In addition to watching each episode in its entirety, you can also view a whole host of deleted scenes and other extras that didn’t make their way into the finished film. But act fast, as the film will only be available online until October 9th.
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
