America Revealed

Explore the networks and systems that keep America running

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Tonight is the second part of the four-part PBS series America Revealed, an epic journey and aerial look at the complex networks and systems that keep America running. Technology expert and communications attorney Yul Kwon (winner of “Survivor: Cook Islands”) serves as your adventurous host and guide.

America Revealed follows Kwon as he climbs, leaps and rides across the United States to trace the movements and communications that miraculously come together to grow and deliver our food; transport us and materials; and power our energy addiction.

Tonight’s episode, “Nation on the Move,” looks at how our vast distances and dense urban clusters are woven together by 200,000 miles of railroads, 5,000 airports, and four million miles of roads. These massive, complex transportation systems combine to make Americans the most mobile people on Earth. The program airs tonight at 10/9 pm CT on KET.

The first episode, “Food Machine,” which aired last week, looks at how 300 million people are fed every day. Watch the first part of America Revealed online!
