Few dreamers have had more impact on the American city than Daniel Hudson Burnham. He built some of the first skyscrapers in the world; directed construction of the World’s Columbian Exposition that helped inspire the City Beautiful Movement in towns across America; and created urban plans for San Francisco, Washington, DC, Chicago, Cleveland and Manila and Baguio City in the Philippines all before the modern profession of urban planning existed. "Make No Little Palns: Daniel Burnham and The American City" is the first film to explore Burnham’s fascinating career and complex legacy as public debate continues today about how and for whom cities are planned.
Honored to Serve, a WETA TV 26 broadcast and community engagement initiative, spotlights those who serve in America's military and their families at home, and seeks to foster a deeper appreciation of the U.S. military and its history.
