Overview

This Ken Burns produced documentary on Thomas Jefferson comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. There are no subtitles, but the soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include a conversation with Burns, and a featurette on Ken Burns' creative process. This is a solid release from PBS Home Video that should appeal to history buffs and may be of value to teachers in a classroom setting.
