Ships, trains, planes, and automobiles-chances are that one or more has taken you for a ride. But have you considered how deeply each has contributed to the development and transformation of America?

A&E and the Smithsonian Institution invite you on a spectacular tour through the National Museum of American History's magnificent new transportation exhibit: AMERICA ON THE MOVE. Featuring interviews and fascinating archival footage, AMERICA ON THE MOVE highlights many of the museum's priceless artifacts--from an actual piece of Route 66 that visitors can walk on to a full-sized steam locomotive and the interior of a Mississippi riverboat, as well as a jaw-dropping showroom of authentic classic automobiles. Using advanced multimedia technology and innovative theatrical design, AMERICA ON THE MOVE is an unforgettable experience that brings to life the pivotal role transportation has played in our nation's business, 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. Interviews with former workers and family members point out his genius and eccentricities, while historians trace the career of this industrial giant from his 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.

From the horse and buggy to the railroad to automobiles to a global culture of almost instantaneous communication, the Smithsonian Institution and A&E present two complete documentaries exploring more than a century of invention, innovation, transportation, and transformation.
