Availability information for this program

This animated program features a story that centers on a small New England community similar to Pawtucket, Rhode Island, where the first textile mill in America was established by Samuel Slater. The live action hosted by David Macaulay, takes us from Manchester, England, to Lowell, Massachusetts. Along the way, the host guides viewers through the technological changes that transformed the making of textiles, which became a key component of the Industrial Revolution that swept across Europe and America in the late 18th century.
