    The life of Theodore “Bull Moose” Roosevelt, the 26th president, is one subject of the new seven-part series, “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History” by director Ken Burns that will air on ThinkTV in September. The Little Art Theatre will host a preview screening at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 7, with family member and Antioch College President Mark Roosevelt, who will give a brief introduction about Theodore, Franklin Delano and Eleanor Roosevelt, whose public and private lives are the focus of the PBS series.
