AMERICA REVEALED takes viewers on a four-hour journey high above the American landscape to reveal the country as never seen before.
Technology expert and communications attorney Yul Kwon (winner of "Survivor: Cook Islands") hosts this exciting new PBS series that travels through time, space and systems to reveal a nation of interdependent and intricately interwoven networks that feed and power the nation, produce millions of goods, transport people great distances and still come together to make America work. These networks all rely on vast, complex and precisely calibrated systems, yet most Americans have never had the chance to observe or understand them. Until now.
Episodes include:
"Food Machine" How America keeps pace with its insatiable appetite; who decides what food is produced; and how pastures and prairies became the biggest food machine in the world.
"Nation on the Move" How America moves, whether the mode of transport is a bicycle, a family car on the mammoth interstate highway system or air traffic racing above the clouds.
"Electric Nation" How America propels itself through energy; the creation of electricity through water, wind and nuclear power; and the intricacies of energy distribution.
"Made in the U.S.A." How American industry creates, whether it's a simple cardboard box, a sleek new car or a tiny silicon chip, and how supply and demand, manufacturing and assembly are interconnected.
