Published on Sep 28, 2015

Ric Burns’ film THE PILGRIMS airs November 24th, and again on Thanksgiving, on PBS’ American Experience series. Check your local listings here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexper…

Featuring Roger Rees, in his final onscreen performance, as William Bradford and narration by Oliver Platt, THE PILGRIMS will explore the forces, circumstances, personalities and events that converged to propel their crossing, a story universally familiar yet largely unexplored in its rich and compelling historical actuality, and rarely presented in the broad global context required.
