The Dust Bowl

Set your DVR

I’m a big fan of Ken Burns.

His films, shown on your local PBS station, are distinctive in style: The Civil War, The War (WW2), Baseball, and Prohibition to name a few.

He tells stories, using old pictures mixed with interviews of living survivors and participants in the drama that unfolded during their lives.

His latest, The Dust Bowl, premieres this Sunday evening on PBS. Set your DVR. Even if you don’t love history, it’s a chance to learn at the feet of a master story-teller.
