Over the last 30 years, Ken Burns has produced some of the most popular documentaries about U.S. history that have ever appeared on public television, so it was inevitable that he would turn his attention to our national pastime. The 10-part series Baseball digs deep into the roots of our all-American game, revealing how aspects of it were borrowed from European sports like cricket and rounders. Each episode follows the development of baseball through the decades, covering the ups and downs of keeping leagues going during wartime, the emergence of the baseball player as celebrity, the harsh injustice of consigning African American athletes to the segregated Negro Leagues, and the modern era of baseball as a multi-million dollar industry.

In 1973, early in their careers, Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro collaborated for the first time. Over the next few decades, they worked together on seven more movies, many of which brought them both acclaim and awards. While successful director and actor pairings have occurred throughout the history of film, few have fashioned so many works of enduring value as these two artists. In little more than two decades, Scorsese and De Niro produced eight features, including the classics "Taxi Driver," "Raging Bull," and "GoodFellas."
