Better make those park reservations now.
Ken Burns’ “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” a six-part, 12-hour documentary celebrating the virtues of the country’s nearly 400 federally protected spaces sets up camp on PBS on Sept. 27 and stays through Oct. 2.
The country’s most famous documentarian, who spoke this afternoon during TCA’s summer press tour, is hoping to do for the national parks what he did for its battlefields after the airing of his landmark PBS series “The Civil War” when visits to sites like Gettysburg skyrocketed by as much as 300%......“We want the superintendents angry at us because of all the Popsicle wrappers they’ll have to clean up,” Burns said. “It’s a good problem to have.”
