THE DUST BOWL

Encore Broadcast April 23 and 30, 2013
8:00–10:00 p.m. ET on PBS

THE DUST BOWL chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, in which the frenzied wheat boom of the “Great Plow-Up,” followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Vivid interviews with twenty-six survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs and seldom seen movie footage, bring to life stories of incredible human suffering and equally incredible human perseverance. It is also a morality tale about our relationship to the land that sustains us—a lesson we ignore at our peril.

  1. Fascinating. Hopefully we´ve learned from our mistakes. Some great art and literature came out of that time too. Steinbeck, Woody Guthrie and the folk music movement to name just two.
