Q&A with Ken Burns on “The Dust Bowl”

Two part film debuts Sunday, 11/18 on PBS

It’s been said that more people have acquired their history from Ken Burns than from any other single source.

Over the last 30 years, the award winning documentarian and film maker has crafted definitive portraits on subjects ranging from The Civil War and World War II to baseball, jazz and our National Park System.

His latest film chronicles a catastrophe of Biblical proportions – the Dust Bowl of the 1930s that turned vast stretches of the Great Plains into a desert and convinced many of its victims that they were witnessing the end of times.
