Ken Burns: The National Parks

This special celebrates one of Ken Burns' most beautiful series, THE NATIONAL PARKS: AMERICA'S BEST IDEA. Filmed over the course of more than six years at some of nature's most spectacular locales – from Acadia to Yosemite, Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon, the Everglades of Florida to the Gates of the Arctic in Alaska – it's a story of people who have devoted themselves to saving some precious portion of the land they love.
