Ken Burns discusses new Ben Franklin film with Tauck guests, travel advisors: Travel Weekly

Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns and longtime collaborator Dayton Duncan joined Tauck guests and travel advisors recently for an online Q&A discussion of their latest film, which can be viewed on Tauck’s website.

“Benjamin Franklin,” Burns’ two-part, four-hour documentary on the American innovator, dives into the life of the polymath and Founding Father of the United States. 

The film was discussed live with Tauck president Jennifer Tombaugh, who hosted the Q&A with Burns and Duncan during a session of the company’s InsideTauck program. 

InsideTauck was launched in March 2020 as a way to provide Tauck guests and partners with a virtual way of connecting with the company’s cultural, historic and gastronomic tours while the pandemic ground travel to a halt.
