The third of a series of documentary films that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. The children were selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child's social class predetermines their future. Director Michael Apted takes the helm as the subjects, now aged twenty-one, talk about their lives and their hopes and dreams for the future.

Every era begins with the human will to move, and History uncovers the great forces that set mankind in motion. It's an epic, premium, global documentary about the greatest migrations of all time, and the repercussions that they have had - culturally, sociologically, and politically. Sparked by the Industrial Revolution, a wave of migrants flood the US. One-third of the entire population of Norway and Sweden migrate to America, transforming the Pacific Northwest; opened by the transcontinental railroad, Mennonite farmers from Ukraine turn Kansas into the breadbasket of the country; in 1908, more Italians were living in New York City than Rome. Spanning the 1900s through the 1970s, this episode reveals how our ancestors, coming from America's own Southern states, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia, change America's cityscapes forever, and directly influence the map of modern America.

Every era begins with the human will to move, and History uncovers the great forces that set mankind in motion. It's an epic, premium, global documentary about the greatest migrations of all time, and the repercussions that they have had - culturally, sociologically, and politically. From the Dutch living in New Amsterdam seeking the wealth offered by the fur trade, through the English Quakers who fled persecution and helped shape the American Constitution, to the German soldiers who helped the North defeat the South, this episode uses expert historians, DNA evidence and census records to explore our cultural origins through the different groups who travelled to America seeking freedom from early Colonial times through the end of the Civil War.
