Talk of Alaska: Our National Parks

Ken Burns’ latest documentary is debuting SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27.

This time the popular filmmaker takes a look at our national parks. And while millions of Americans tour our parks every year – not everyone in Alaska thinks creating them was such a great idea.

What are our feelings about national parks? What is their status? What’s next for the National Parks Service?

Our national parks – the subject, on the next “Talk of Alaska,” statewide.
