Description

The Great Depression had its roots in the First World War. We examine the efforts of various countries, including the USA, Canada, Australia, and several in Europe, to make the transition from war economies to more normal market conditions. It covers the post-war boom in manufacturing and wheat production in the USA and Canada; the prosperous 'Roaring Twenties'; the effects of severe drought conditions in North America; the economic, agricultural, and societal conditions that led to the 'Crash of 29'. The program uses archival film and images to clearly depict the struggle of ordinary people to survive. It concludes with the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the U.S. & his goal of returning confidence to the American people.
