Synopsis >

AMERICAN EXPERIENCE presents The 1930s, a five-part series that examines the political and cultural life of America during one of history's most tumultuous decades. Beginning with the stock market collapse in the Crash of 1929, the series looks at the creation of FDR's Tree Army in Civilian Conservation Corps, the construction of one of the greatest engineering projects of the modern era in Hoover Dam, the impact of the catastrophic drought that transformed the plains in Surviving the Dust Bowl, and an unlikely hero that gave downtrodden Americans hope in Seabiscuit.
