Ken Burns' National Parks Series encore presentation begins Wednesday on PBS

January 25, 2010 |  2:27 pm

The Burns documentary includes a stop at Yellowstone National Park's Old Faithful geyser as part of its 12-hour overview.

The popular Ken Burns’ series, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” begins its encore broadcast, with the first episode airing Wednesday on PBS.  It will then appear on consecutive Wednesdays through March 3.

Burns spent nearly a decade making the six-part, 12-hour documentary. With breathtaking cinematography, the series sparked the interests of many (myself included) to travel and visit the National Parks

Premiering last September, the series was the second most-watched on PBS during the last decade, reaching a total audience of 33.4 million viewers.

For local times and channels, please visit the PBS website.
