Topeka A crew from Germany’s largest public television station is in Kansas filming a documentary about the Santa Fe Trail.
The team from ARD Network will be in the state through Sunday while following the historic trail from Missouri to New Mexico.
The Kansas Department of Commerce says the crew is interviewing people who live near the trail. The filmmakers are also talking with descendants of the pioneers and American Indians who lived along the trail when it was first used.
ARD Network plans to show the documentary this winter in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and later throughout Europe.
