Ken Burns on History and the National Parks

Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns talks about history at Viewmont High School.

By Jennifer Napier-Pearce

Bountiful, UT – The late historian Stephen Ambrose famously said that more Americans get their history from documentary filmmaker Ken Burns than any other source. Burns was in Utah last week promoting his latest film about America's National Parks. KUER's Jennifer Napier-Pearce caught up with him at Viewmont High School in Bountiful to ask if he considers himself a historian. "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" begins airing Sunday, September 27 on KUED Channel 7.
