How the world made America
Every era begins with the human will to move. During the 1880s, half the Jews in Russia moved to New York City. One in three Scandinavians migrated to America to become our first lumberjacks. The Great Potato Famine emptied Ireland, giving the railroad ty coons in America two million migrant workers. In Human Journey (WT), History uncovers the great forces that set mankind in motion. Its an epic, premium, global documentary about the greatest migrations of all time, and the repercussions that they have had culturally, sociologically, and politically on our present nation.

It includes "wow" facts and surprising information that piece together how we all got here.
