MIAMI (AP) - Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns previewed part of
his upcoming series on national parks in Miami.

A packed house at the University of Miami's Gusman Concert Hall
got to see an hour of "The National Parks: America's Best Idea"

The six-part, 12-hour series, is scheduled to air in September on PBS.

The series focuses largely on the people who
fought to create the parks, including Everglades National Park and
Biscayne National Park in South Florida.

Subjects of Burns' past projects include baseball, jazz and the Civil War.

Burns says he hopes the new series will ultimately lead to more visitors at national parks.
