American 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. Interview with former workers and family members point out his genius and eccentricities, while historians trace the career of this industrial giant from the 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.
