Dust bowl documentarian Ken Burns talks about new film

Amarillo, TX - One famous documentary maker made a stop in Amarillo Sunday to discuss his latest project.

Ken Burns held a conference at Amarillo College Sunday afternoon to talk about his new documentary called "The Dust Bowl."

He says 26 Texan and Oklahoman survivors of the 1930s dust bowl era were interviewed for his project.

Burns and his crew spent time traveling throughout the panhandle to gather information.

"This is, first and foremost, a great, great story.  And once you dig a bit deeper in the dust, you understand the heroic people that populate our film were amazing human beings, and the stories they have to tell haven't been told," Burns said.

The documentary will air in two parts in November on PBS stations across the country.
