Baseball : A Ken Burns Film

In summer 2010, PBS will re-broadcast three episodes of Ken Burns’s landmark 1994 series BASEBALL. Join Burns for the classic baseball stories from the Great Depression through the 1950s, from Joe DiMaggio and Satchel Paige to Ted Williams and Jackie Robinson, to Willie Mays and Don Larsen. These three episodes lead up to the September 2010 premiere of Burns and co-director Lynn Novick’s THE TENTH INNING, a new two-part, four-hour documentary series that takes BASEBALL from the 1990s to the present and explores the sport’s new Golden Age — an era of unprecedented home-run totals, popularity and prosperity — as well as some of baseball’s darkest hours — the steroid era.
