Watch Ken Burns on The Daily Show
September 16, 2014 Leave a Comment
A big national documentary project like The Roosevelts: An Intimate History means more than just a week of great TV on Wisconsin Public Television. It also means we get to see and hear more from filmmaker Ken Burns on a number of media platforms, including Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.
Below, watch Burns’ visit with Jon Stewart to talk about the three subjects of the film, whether they might succeed in today’s political landscape and how he attempted to tie together three stories that literally spanned from the Civil War through World War II. You’ll also – in the second clip – see the full, extended bonus interview that goes beyond what made the TV show.
Part three of The Roosevelts airs tonight at 7 on WPT. You can also watch the full program online here or on the PBS Roku channel.
