Ken Burns trains his filmmaker’s eye on “The Dust Bowl” in a two-part, four hour documentary, premiering Sunday at 8 p.m. on Channel 2. We sat down with Burns and collaborator Dayton Duncan at the Television Critics Association press tour to discuss the documentary and the dust. “There’s no way to soft-pedal it,” says Burns. “There’s humor in it. There’s heroism and perseverance but this is an apocalypse. This is the worst man made ecological disaster in American history.”
