Documentary films often have the authoritative “Voice of God” style of narration, which presents an omniscient, impartial, deep-voiced narrator. Someone often associated with this is voice over artist Peter Coyote, best known as the narrator of Ken Burns’ documentaries. Peter Coyote continues to work as an actor, voiceover artist, and narrator. He lives in Northern California.
