Big Band Years

THE BIG BAND YEARS turns back the clock to a time when swing musicians ruled the radio and nightclubs, bringing a joyful escape to Americans during one of the most turbulent times in the nation’s history. Among the immortal artists featured are Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Guy Lombardo, Sammy Kaye, Tex Beneke, Cab Calloway and other greats. Hosted by veteran game show host and singer Peter Marshall.

The Concert for George

On November 29, 2002, one year after the passing of George Harrison, Olivia Harrison and Eric Clapton organized a performance tribute in his honor.

The story of an idea as American as the Declaration of Independence and just as radical, that the most special places in the nation be preserved.

The National Parks: America's Best Idea is a six-episode series produced by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan and written by Dayton Duncan. Filmed over the course of more than six years at some of nature's most spectacular locales – from Acadia to Yosemite, Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon, the Everglades of Florida to the Gates of the Arctic in Alaska.

Ken Burns: National Parks

The National Parks: America's Best Idea is nonetheless a story of people: people from every conceivable background – rich and poor; famous and unknown; soldiers and scientists; natives and newcomers; idealists, artists and entrepreneurs; people 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.
