10 that Changed America offers three whirlwind tours of America's architectural treasures.
In an episode called 10 Homes that Changed America we explore American housing through the ages; including a 600 year old Native American dwelling, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, a gothic castle in New York, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, the home of Charles and Ray Eames, a tenement, and an early public housing project.
10 Parks that Changed America is a lively history of landscape architecture in this country. We stop by the Squares of Savannah in Georgia, a park-like cemetery near Boston, the San Antonio River Walk, a park built over a freeway in Seattle, a toxic waste site that was transformed into a park, and Central Park and the High Line in New York.
10 Towns that Changed America is the story of how we have planned our cities over time. We examine a Spanish colonial town in Florida, William Penn's unlikely vision for Philadelphia, the Mormon plan for Salt Lake City, a failed company town near Chicago, urban renewal in Washington, D.C., and the latest ideas about city planning in Portland.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
