PBS brings you a preview of the newest Ken Burns documentary series,
THE NATIONAL PARKS: AMERICAS BEST IDEA. The 12-hour, six-part
documentary series, directed by Burns and co-produced with his longtime
colleague, Dayton Duncan, who also wrote the script, is the story of an
idea as uniquely American as the Declaration of Independence and just
as radical: that the most special places in the nation should be
preserved, not for royalty or the rich, but for everyone.
