America Revealed (DVD)
The UK producers of BRITAIN FROM ABOVE take you to the skies for a birds eye view of how this vast and complex country actually works. Stunning aerial footage, high-definition video and real-time satellite data reveal the American landscape as you ve never seen it before. Host Yul Kwon climbs, leaps, and rides across the U.S. to trace the mighty infrastructures that miraculously come together to manufacture goods, transport people, grow tonnes of food, and power the tech-dependent nation. From the glaciers of Alaska to the crowded New York subways; from Chicago s bustling freight yards to the lonely badlands of Wyoming, Yul takes you to spectacular and unexpected places and introduces you to the people whose effort and expertise puts food on every American table, keeps the lights on, the transport systems moving and the factories busy. This is a celebration of a nation in the 21st century. This is AMERICA REVEALED. Food Machine: How does America keep pace with its insatiable appetite? This is the story of how a revolution in food production turned deserts into orchards, prairies into a bread basket, and created the biggest food machine in the world. Nation on the Move: Americans are the most mobile people on earth and their transport systems are the biggest and most complex. From the rural school bus to the busiest airport, Yul explores the vast infrastructure that keeps Americans on the move. Electric Nation: Electricity is often taken for granted, but how is it generated and how does America s vast but aging grid get it to every house, office and factory in the nation? Made in the U.S.A.: This is the story of how American manufacturers embraced new ideas and technologies to transform themselves into world-leading producers of everything, from sleek new cars to mighty ships and microchips.
