Availability information for this program

The 1904 World's Fair was intended to be the biggest and best World's Fair ever. The first Olympics on American soil where competitors were openly administered drugs and marathon runners were chased off course by dogs. The first Ferris Wheel, so large that a wedding was held on horseback in one of its cars. This engaging feature-length documentary looks at an important time in American history through a series of compelling, intimate and entertaining stories.
