America Revealed on PBS

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

I’m not sure how I missed this, but PBS’s America Revealed, which has apparently been running since last month, is the American version of the popular Britain From Above. Four episodes have aired so far on transportation, electricity, and manufacturing, along with a making-of episode. Here’s a clip from the transportation episode.

The series airs on Wednesdays at 10/9c. Although it looks like the full series ran already. It wouldn’t make much sense to go over the making-of in the middle. On the upside, four episodes are available online.

Had I known this existed, maybe I wouldn’t have subjected myself to the monstrosity of a show in United Stats of America.

    The making of episode didn’t air. It four episodes that aired were about food, electricity, transportation, and manufacturing.
