A Little Bit of New Mexico on FDR's desk


The Dust Bowl was a critical moment in American history…a human caused ecological disaster that destroyed the farmland of the great plains and turned prairies into deserts. A new documentary by Ken Burns set to air later this month on PBS aims to chronicle the  complexities of the event and the resulting human drama. Co producer Julie Dunfey joined KUNM’s Carrie Jung in the studio today to talk a little more about the film…and why we can expect something new from this Ken Burns production.  

You can watch "The Dust Bowl" on KCME-TV Channel 5 on November 18th and 19th beginning at 8pm.
