Part one: THE GREAT SHAKE-UP: Examines the changes that swept the shaken nation during the first year of the Great Depression, from the landslide victory of FDR In 1932, to the California migration of Dust Bowl farmers.
Part two: FACE THE MUSIC: Faced with hard times, Americans sought release wherever they could find it, from marathon dancing to going to the movies. Using extensive film clips and photos, this episode shows how the media came to age to become an integral part of daily life.
Part three: STRIKING BACK: As the Depression lingered and the New Deal failed to live up to people's expectation, some Americans fought back against a system they felt had betrayed them. Illuminating rare footage and revealing interviews relive the desperate acts of people who had been pushed too far by the crisis.
Part four: DESPERATE MEASURES: Finally, after years of crisis, World War II approached and did what all the protests and recovery programs failed to do--end the Great Depression.
