America: The Story of the US

America The Story of the US is an epic 12 hour television event that tells the extraordinary story of how America,as we now know it, was created. With highly realistic CGI animation, dramatic reconstructions and thoughtful insights from some of America's most respected artists, business leaders, academics and intellectuals, it is the first television event in nearly 40 years to present a comprehensive history of America.

Elaborate, ambitious and cinematic, America The Story of the US will illuminate the moments when Americans harnessed technology to advance human progress. From the rigours of linking the continent by transcontinental railroad - the internet of its day - to triumphing over vertical space through the construction of steel structured buildings to putting a man on the moon.

It is an intensive look at the people, places and things that have shaped the American nation, and the tough and thrilling adventure that is America's 400 year history.
