Posted Tue Aug 14, 2012 at 12:00 PM PDT by

The acclaimed filmmaker's documentary blows in on Blu-ray this November.

In an early announcement to retailers, PBS has dated 'Ken Burns' The Dust Bowl' for Blu-ray on November 20.

The Dust Bowl chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history when a frenzied wheat boom on the southern Plains followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Menacing black blizzards killed farmers' crops and livestock, threatened the lives of their children and forced thousands of desperate families to pick up and move somewhere else.

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
