THE NATIONAL PARKS: AMERICA’S BEST IDEA is a six-episode series produced by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan and written by Dayton Duncan. Filmed over the course of more than six years at some of nature’s most spectacular locales – from Acadia to Yosemite, Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon, the Everglades of Florida to the Gates of the Arctic in Alaska – THE NATIONAL PARKS: AMERICA’S BEST IDEA is nonetheless a story of people: people from every conceivable background – rich and poor; famous and unknown; soldiers and scientists; natives and newcomers; idealists, artists and entrepreneurs; people who were willing to devote themselves to saving some precious portion of the land they loved, and in doing so reminded their fellow citizens of the full meaning of democracy.

Have you ever wondered how Ken Burns might have told the story of Star Wars? Well thanks to Alyssa Rosenberg, a writer for The Washington Post, you don’t have to wonder any longer. To celebrate the release of The Force Awakens and her love of Ken Burns documentaries, Rosenberg imagined how the pioneering documentarian might have told the story of the Galactic Civil War in a four minute video parody. It has all the hallmarks of a Ken Burns’ documentary. A calm narration, slow pans across still photographs, talking heads, and a letter home from a soldier who did not survive the conflict.
