Synopsis


Ken Burns: Jackie Robinson
Master documentarian Ken Burns turns his focus to American legend Jackie Robinson in this four-hour PBS biography about the groundbreaking baseball player and civil rights icon. The exhaustive documentary utilizes revealing interviews with Robinson's family as well as rare photographs and film footage to flesh out the story of one of the most interesting and important men of the 20th century. Through his inimitable style, Burns sets out to show why Robinson was so much more than simply the man who broke baseball's color barrier. Narrated by Keith David, with Jamie Foxx reading Robinson's words. Extras include a conversation with the filmmakers. ~ Jennifer Lackman, Rovi

    A great documentary! The footage, facts and picture quality are great. I would recommend this to any diehard baseball fan, or non-sports fan. A true American who helped pave the integration of a sport.
