The Best of Ken Burns Now Available on SCETV Passport

The National Parks
Filmed over the course of more than six years at some of nature's most spectacular locales, it is a story of people from every conceivable background who were willing to devote themselves to saving some precious portion of the land they loved and in doing so reminded their fellow citizens of the full meaning of democracy.

Central Park Five

Directed and produced by Ken Burns, David McMahon and Sarah Burns, the film chronicles the Central Park Jogger case, from the perspective of the five teenagers whose lives were upended by this miscarriage of justice.
