PBS Distribution will release another new episode of its hit series American Experience next week.

American Experience: The Circus is scheduled to be released on DVD next Tuesday, Nov. 6.  The four-hour, two-part doc will retail for MSRP of $29.99, but can be pre-ordered online now via PBS’ online store at a reduced price of $24.99.

The program follows the rich history of the circus, from its earliest days as a one-ring show in Philadelphia in the 18th century to the rise of P.T. Barnum’s circus to the eventual merger of the famed Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.  The program’s total run time is 240 minutes, and includes stories about the stars of the circus, as it grew along with much more.

A trailer for the episode is streaming online now here.
