Ken Burns' new documentary The War will premiere on WVIZ/PBS next weekend. Monday morning, we'll reprise our recent conversation with Burns about this new project and his career. Burns has been called the master of the American documentary, and, after producing award winners on the Civil War, Baseball, and Jazz, he says "The War" is his best work yet. Join us Monday morning at nine.
