WARM SPRINGS, Ga.
Filmmaker Ken Burns says he wants to tell the story of the Roosevelts, both strengths and flaws, in his upcoming documentary on one of America's most famous political families.
Burns said the Roosevelt political legacy remains relevant now as U.S. leaders debate how big the federal government should be.
The Roosevelts featured in the film lived and governed during a time of enormous change in the U.S, including the country's emergence as a world power, the Great Depression, World War II and the civil rights struggle.
