Recount the dismay of the 1930s with this overview of the Great Depression. The program uses a wealth of primary sources, including historical photographs, President Roosevelt's 1936 State of the Union address, and the diary entries of a farmer and his wife, to illustrate the devastation rampant across the U.S., but most harsh across the Dust Bowl. Host Steven Andresen also includes excerpts from John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, as well as the autobiography of Woodie Guthrie, to tell personal tales of survival.
