I watched it also, John Muir is one of my alltime most admired people. Most interesting program, I learned a lot.

We were tuned in and plan to stay with it all week. Ken Burns never disappoints, and with National Parks, how could his film miss? ~G

We are recording it to view later. Hope the DVO or whatever that thing is records. Also hope that we remember to record it every evening, until the end.

Re: Lee Stetson

I just got through watching. I thought it was excellent. The fellow who did the John Muir voice was the guy with the beard in the film named Lee Stetson. (I'm not sure I spelled his last name right). Each summer he does a one man show at the Yosemite Theater where he plays John Muir. He has a few different shows like, "Conversations with a Tramp," and "John Muir is back and Boy is he ticked off." If you are in Yosemite in the summer it is a must. His show is very professional.
We just spent last week camping there and unfortunately the show wasn't running.

Ken Burn's works should be considered the same as informative as those of Shakespeare by our educational systems. The percentage that could gain from them is much greater.

AWESOME AWESOME stories! Ken Burns is the best. Watched the first one 3 times in a row (can't help it) Tonight's episode was just as good. I think I'm going to have to buy the set.

Just finished watching the third episode...this is the best use of the medium I've seen in years.
