It makes you wish they'd made more...

The makers of "The American Experience" tried something different with this short series. Instead of focusing on one person like they would with their show, here in "They Made America" they highlight three people each episode who helped to make America a great innovator. Some of them are well-known (such as Ted Turner) but most are people you have never heard of before--folks who have been lost to most history books but were super-important anyway. People who innovated, took risks or were pure genius are celebrated here. In many ways, it is like "The American Experience". One of the series' more prolific narrators, David Ogden Stiers, is the narrator for "They Made America". And the format is pretty similar--with expert interviews, photos, video and historical re-creations to explain their stories. All in all, a very fascinating and worthy show if you love history. The only problem is that they made four episodes and that's it! I sure would like to see some more of these!
