TV alert: Ken Burns' National Parks epic

In case you don't watch much TV, you might not have heard - a new Ken Burns epic debuts this weekend - "The National Parks, America's Best Idea."

If you love parks, the outdoors or history, you'll probably want to check it out. Burns, who's filmed histories of the Civil War, baseball, jazz, the West, the Second World War and more, spent six years compiling footage and stories from national parks in every corner of the land - Acadia, Alaska, the Everglades, the Grand Canyon and Yosemite, to name just some.
