In the first half of the 20th Century, America leads the world in industrial innovation. The nation is embracing a technological revolution that changes its way of life forever. We start at the inaugural Indy 500 in 1911, and show how the lives and businesses of three families interweave over 70 years, driving America’s industrial transformation. Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone and Thomas Edison become international celebrities and America’s Titans of Industry. Their story is seen in colour for the first time.

In the 1920s, USA undergoes the greatest period of change in its history. In ten years, a country of horse drawn carriages, modest clothing and saloons is overthrown by cars, liberated women and Prohibition. Never before seen archive and rare home movie footage shows us the era in colour for the first time.
