Ken Burns's four-hour documentary, Benjamin Franklin, explores the revolutionary life of one of the 18th century's most consequential figures.

Episode 1 | “Join or Die” (1706-1774)

Episode 2 | "An American" (1775-1790)

I watched Episode 2, but not Episode 1 yet. It's a thorough, in-depth look at Franklin's life and legacy.

Streaming on PBS.  I watch on Roku's PBS app.  All free to sign up and shown On Demand.

I've just started watching Episode 1 and it's already fascinating.  Narrated by Peter Coyote.

I watched the first episode and really enjoyed it.  I thought it presented a balanced picture of Franklin and brought out a lot of small details that I'd either forgotten or never knew.
