The Dust Bowl

Production of a two-part, four-hour documentary film series on the Dust Bowl, the southern Plains states' decade-long natural catastrophe and man-made ecological disaster in the 1930s.

THE DUST BOWL is a 2-part, 4-hour documentary film series that will explore a decade-long natural catastrophe of Biblical proportions and the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, a collective tragedy that nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. The series will be broadcast nationally in prime time on PBS in 2012, and will be accompanied by extensive educational outreach materials and a major promotional campaign to drive tune-in. In addition a web site will be created for the film to be housed on pbs.org.
