Description:
Companion to a 2005 PBS Nova program that "not only gives viewers a fascinating glimpse of cutting-edge preservation technology, it also explores the background and meaning of these documents [Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights], particularly the Declaration of Independence, whose significance changed over time from a simple catalog of grievances against the English king to a stirring proclamation of the rights of all people." Includes program transcript and features on damage and conservation.
