To mark the 25th Anniversary of Ken Burns’ magnificent film The Civil War, PBS is rebroadcasting over five nights, Sept. 7 – 11, 2015, at 9PM ET, a fully re-mastered HD edition of this amazing film, which, to this day, is the highest rated PBS series ever broadcast having attracted nearly 39 million viewers when first broadcast in September 1990.
In addition, on August 11th, PBS will broadcast a new special that tells the story behind the award-winning series and its impact on the viewing audience and documentary film production. The special features interviews with Ken Burns, writer Geoffrey Ward, co-writer and co-producer Ric Burns, and others. Sam Waterston, who is the voice of Lincoln in the film, is the host of the special.
Great documentary film-making is evergreen as the re-broadcast of this seminal film will show.
This truly is must-see TV.
