Out of the tradition of the great 19th-century European trade exhibitions came a 20th-century American phenomenon, one that provided recreation, inspiration, and what amounted to a cultural barometer-the World's Fair. At the time this classic program was produced, the United States had hosted nine of them, from the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 to the sprawling 1982 celebration in Knoxville, Tennessee. Presented by Bill Moyers, the video explores the many ways in which these global festivities have reflected-not always by design-America's changing views about the world and the future.
