AMERICAN MASTERS: "THE DAY CARL SANDBURG DIED"
PBS, 10:00 p.m. ET
Paul Bonesteel’s biographical film relies heavily upon Carl Sandburg’s own words, as he spoke them, to shape this study of the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, and it’s all the better for its liberal use of interviews, recorded readings and songbook selections.
