On Wednesday, April 20, consumers have a fabulous opportunity to listen, watch or participate in the 40th Tauck Live Event. The “wow factor” here is the chance to hear from renowned filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan.

The action unfolds during a live, online interview program. Hosted by Jennifer Tombaugh, Tauck’s president, the discussion will begin at 1 p.m. and conclude at 2 p.m.

Personally, we can’t wait for this Tauck Live Event and the online discussion! If you’re a Tauck fan or just interested in the filmmakers and their past film achievements, it’s a live, Web program not to be missed.

40 Years of Filmmaking

In more than four decades of filmmaking, Ken Burns has produced more than 40 award-winning documentaries including The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” “Baseball,” “The Civil War”and “Jazz.”

We admit it. We’re duly impressed. Burns’ films have won 16 Emmy Awards and they’ve also been nominated for two Academy Awards.

In addition, Dayton Duncan, a producer and talented writer, is Burns’ long-time creative partner for the filmmaking projects.

Tauck’s longstanding partnership with the two filmmakers began in 2010 with the production of short videos. These flicks are shared exclusively with guests on “Ken Burns American Journeys.

Essentially, the duo’s insightful commentary and storytelling bring to life the story of America, coast to coast.

What can you expect from the April 20 event? As noted, Tombaugh will host this online program, which is expected to be “an intimate conversation” with the filmmakers.

For instance, during the Tauck Live Event, the filmmaking duo will discuss their unique partnership with Tauck. Plus, they’ll talk about their latest, new film, “Benjamin Franklin,” which was released by PBS on April 4 and 5.

Yep, we’ve already signed up and we’d encourage The Meandering Traveler’s loyal blog readers to do the same. It’s free. Here’s the link to register.

Tauck believes that Web attendance will be high. Given that outlook, it’s a great idea to RSVP early – well ahead of the presentation.

In addition, do you have any specific questions for Tauck to consider asking Burns or Duncan during this program?

While there’s no guarantee that all questions submitted can be addressed in the allotted time, the tour company likely will appreciate a good mix of questions that interest their guests.

Have any questions? If so, send to insidetauck@tauck.com.

It’s also good to know that this April 20 event will be recorded. So, if you’re not able to watch the Tauck Live Event on April 20, you’ll be able to see it later on-demand at Tauck’s travel blog.
