Using advanced multimedia technology and innovative theatrical design, AMERICA ON THE MOVE is an unforgettable experience that brings to life the pivotal role transportation has played in our nation's business and social and cultural growth. Concluding our transportation double feature is the A&E BIOGRAPHY. profile HENRY FORD: TIN LIZZY TYCOON. From the moment the first Model T rolled off the assembly line, America's love affair with the automobile has never let up. But the man behind the wheel was full of contradictions, infamous for his intolerance, yet admired for his inventiveness. Interviews with former workers and family members point out his genius and eccentricities, while historians trace the career of this industrial giant from his first hand-built car to the V-8 that saved his company from bankruptcy. Compelling and in-depth, HENRY FORD: TIN LIZZY TYCOON captures the essence of one man, who more than any other, changed the way we move. From the horse and buggy to the railroad to automobiles to a global culture of almost instantaneous communication, THE HISTORY CHANNEL. explores more than a century of transportation, invention, innovation, and transformation.show more
