Film "The National Parks -- America's Best Idea" to re-air on PBS

Get your TiVo and DVR ready because PBS has just announced its plans to re-air the landmark film "The National Parks -- America's Best Idea" beginning on Wednesday, January 27th.

The film, produced by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan, is a glowing tribute to the creation, history, and future of America's National Parks.

Filmed over the span of six years and crossing the country from Acadia National Park in Maine to Denali National Park, the filmmakers captured the inspiring stories of everyday citizens who fought to protect our natural treasures.

The six-episode series begins Wednesday, January 27th and airs each Wednesday through March 3rd. Check local listings for show times.

    The National Parks system is surely one of the best ideas the US government ever had!

    Glad it is re-airing. Only saw part of it last time and know friends who missed all of it.

    The tens of thousands of people who lost their homes, businesses and land to NPS eminent domain justifiably don't think this was "America's best idea".

    For a more honest account filling in what Duncan and Burns deliberately omitted from their promotional film watch the earlier PBS Frontline documentary "For the Good of All".
