The National Parks: America’s Best Idea
Sundays at 4 p.m.
This six-part production is a human history set against the most stunning backdrop imaginable. It works its way chronologically through the history of the national parks featuring characters—some famous, most not, from every walk of life—who dedicated their lives to ensuring all could enjoy these places.
The film explores how the national park system came to be and examines some—but not all—of how these majestic places came to be national parks.
