Will Rogers and American Politics   Will Rogers, born part Cherokee in Indian Territory (later Oklahoma), speaks a common-sense language with a gentle humor - he criticizes but in a nice way. It makes him the voice of the nation in the 1920s and 1930s. This film profiles the cowboy, comedian, author, columnist, social commentator, vaudeville performer, movie and radio star. Archival footage and interviews tell the story narrated by Bill Kurtis. "Politics," Rogers maintained, "has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated."G

Dust Bowl  "The Great Plow Up"  This film by Ken Burns chronicles the environmental catastrophe of the Great Plains during the 1930s. The frenzied wheat boom of the early 20th-century that plows the prairie lands becomes the victim of a decade-long drought that turns those lands into deserts and unleashes a pattern of massive, deadly dust storms. Twenty-six survivors of those hard times telling their stories and the eloquently written diaries of two women provide a narrative. Part 1 of 2G

Dust Bowl  "Reaping The Whirlwind"  For nearly a decade, the storms grow more ferocious and more frequent, sweeping up millions of tons of earth, killing crops and livestock, even spreading the dust across the country. Thousands flee, forced onto the road in an exodus unlike anything the United States had seen. But other thousands persevere against enormous odds. Families find ways to survive and hold onto their land. National and local government programs keep hungry families afloat, and a partnership between government agencies and farmers develop new farming and conservation methods. Part 2 of 2G
