Tuesday on TV: PBS relives the March on Washington

Even if you've seen Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech, odds are you've never seen it the way you can in The March (8 p.m., PBS/Ch. 7).

Denzel Washington narrates this documentary about the 1963 March on Washington, and it's full of footage that surprised director John Akomfrah.

"I was surprised at the lack of material as well as the abundance," he said. "It's an odd thing to say. But a lot of the TV coverage has been lost. Quite a bit has been trashed, frankly. And it's surprises you because you think that something that, you know, iconic an event would be preserved."

But they do have "the best 35 millimeter copy" of King's iconic speech.

"It's not all of it," Akomfrah said. "But for the first time, people will actually hear and see this man, Dr. Martin Luther King, make that speech. For me, that was invaluable."
