Airs Tuesday, August 11th at 8p, Wednesday, August 12th at 12:30a, and Friday, August 14th at 7p on WVIA-TV

With the exciting news that Ken Burns’ THE CIVIL WAR will be rebroadcast in its entirety in September of 2015 comes this new celebration of the 25th anniversary of the landmark documentary series.

Featuring interviews with Ken Burns and others who participated in the project (TBD, but perhaps Doris Kearns Goodwin, David McCullough, Jon Meacham and Michael Beschloss), the program will use footage from the original series to share the story of how the award-winning documentary came to be and how it’s become a cultural icon of American storytelling.

KEN BURNS: THE CIVIL WAR will celebrate a tremendous achievement in filmmaking that has withstood the test of time and is as relevant to our national conversation today as it was 25 years ago. And of course, the program will include points on how PBS is the only place where a serious and compelling series like THE CIVIL WAR could ever come to be.
