Here is a link that to the 1 hour showing of the dustbowl that PBS had on tv. You can now watch it online, but I do not know for how much longer the link will be active. I was very impressed with this. It really hit home for me once I was able to see and relate to everything we have talked about in class.

Hi Tony;
I am in lab for English now and Deccio labs will not let me watch the film referred to here. However, I plan to visit later today at home to see it and will come back and comment on this PBS programming (as well as be aware that rabbits may have a tough time in the film), thanks for the one-up.
