PBS Runs Lewis & Clark Encore

While they never found the Northwest Passage, the explorers discovered much more in its place: a vast territory with wildly varying climates; 122 animals and 178 plants never before described by science; and a dizzying diversity of Indian tribes, some of whom had never before seen white men. Their journey, which began a legacy of exploration that stretches all the way to the modern space program, became one of the greatest adventure stories in American history.

LEWIS & CLARK: THE JOURNEY OF THE CORPS OF DISCOVERY was directed and produced by Ken Burns, and written and produced by Dayton Duncan. The editors were Paul Barnes and Erik Ewers. Cinematography was by Buddy Squires, Ken Burns and Allen Moore. It is a production of Florentine Films and WETA, Washington, DC. GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION is the sole corporate underwriter. Additional funding is provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Public Broadcasting Service, William T. Kemper Foundation, Commerce Bank Trustee, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Travel Montana.
