Overview

This Ken Burns documentary, narrated by Hal Holbrook, chronologically traces the well-documented 1804-06 military expedition of Meriwether Lewis 1774-1809 and Lt. William Clark 1770-1838 to survey newly acquired lands and seek a Northwest Passage. Ordered by Thomas Jefferson who labeled it the Corps of Discovery, the expedition was approved by Congress in 1803, and several dozen men were trained in Illinois in the winter of 1803-04. On May 14, 1804, the explorers departed from St. Louis, heading up the Missouri River by keelboat and continuing westward over the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific. Ken Burns spent almost four years on this project, retracing the route with cameras capturing mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and forests at the same time of year as first seen by Lewis and Clark. Traditional and Native American music provides an accompaniment to the grandeur of these vast vistas, while Stephen Ambrose and other historians offer illuminating anecdotes. Paintings and maps are intercut, but unlike other Burns documentaries, few archival photos are included since photography was not invented until decades later. Reenactments, seen at a distance, are also kept at a bare minimum. The four-hour film premiered as a PBS two-parter on November 4-5, 1997.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
Characterized by celebrity voice-overs, authentic period music, and fluid camera movement over vintage photographs, Ken Burns's style in such public television documentaries as Baseball (1994) and The Civil War (1990) had connected US audiences with their history and made the writer-director a star of public television. His ensuing biographies, Thomas Jefferson (1997) and Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery (1997), presented him with subjects from before the invention of photography; he met this challenge by filming the literal geography of his subjects' lives, replacing photos with lush landscapes and epic structures. Thomas Jefferson filmed at Monticello, while Lewis & Clark ambitiously retraces the explorers' route at the same time of year that they passed through each location. Like most of Burns' films, Lewis and Clark relies on only a few scholarly sources, in this case primarily Dayton Duncan and Stephen E. Ambrose, both of whom accompanied Burns for portions of the journey. Burns also earned kudos for giving voice to the Native American perspective on Lewis and Clark by recognizing Sacagawea's participation in the journey and using several Native American historians and writers in the on-camera commentary.
