THE NATIONAL PARKS is the story of an idea as uniquely American as the Declaration of Independence: that the most special places in the nation should be preserved for everyone. The series traces the birth of the national park idea in the mid-1800s and follows its evolution for nearly 150 years, chronicling the addition of new parks through the stories of the people who helped create them.

An excellent series on our National Parks, how they came about and have signified how we are different than the rest of the world. Not only is the main series very good but it is well worth playing the Special Features / Outtakes' that are included. The only thing I found bad about this documentary is the over the top spin that the Sierra Club presents. If you can get by their strong bias or if you agree with the Sierra Club's position you will thoroughly love this presentation created by Ken Burns. At any rate you will learn a lot about our parks history and the politics behind them. Blu-Ray is the way to go if you have the player for that but there is some poorly shot footage that might make you think your player is screwing up, it's not though.

This was advertized as Blu-Ray what it turned out to be was lots of older information upgraded to. blu-ray. Don't get me wrong there are some Blu-ray 1080 to some of the content. Our Wonderful ark System is well documented. I would have bought this as a standerd DVD's because all the old information although factual is not HD it is upgraded to HD.

I love it!!!

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea - Blu-ray:

I recently purchased this wonderful series on the nations of parks ... and I love it!. History, photos, narration, etc ... is wonderful! I'm a 100% fan of this series.
A comment: please do more series dubbed into Spanish, or at least with subtitles. I like many of your series (The West, New York, etc) but my English is not good enough to buy the original version. I'd love to have them because I am passionate about these stories and the way you tell it.
Best regards!!!

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea - Blu-ray:

This is a fascinating romp thru our National Park system. The photography is stunning and the information is very useful. As my husband recently retired, I wanted him to preview all that we can see in the near future .

Best Documentary EVER!!!

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea - Blu-ray:

After watching this excellent program, I felt as if I 've known John Muir all of my life. The complete telling of his passion, committment, and resolve to save our beautiful lands for all the people, along with the great musical score, at times left me in tears. The entire series is the closest possible to have actually been there. What great Americans they all were. I hope that this series will connect with each succeeding generation.

Bravo to Ken Burns and PBS.
