Ken Burns & "The Roosevelts"

Monday, Doug’s guest is renowned filmmaker Ken Burns. His new PBS documentary chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. It’s not just about the deeply significant influence each had on American political life. It’s also the story of flawed, yet courageous individuals and of a complicated family. Burns has called it an “American Downton Abby, with the added virtue of being true.” The 7-part series begins Sunday night on KUED Channel 7.

KUED Channel 7 will air "The Roosevelts," Sunday, September 14 at 7:00 p.m. through Saturday, September 20th. For more information, click here.
