New York, Apr 26, (THAINDIAN NEWS) History channel aired the very first episode of “America: The Story of Us” on Sunday. The program happens to be a 12 hour survey which is staggered over in six parts that traces back the 400 year old history of the great nation. The program kicked off with President Barrack Obama proclaiming boldly the greatness of all American people bounded together by a common cause to remake and carve out a powerful nationality which dreams to achieve big.
Besides President Obama, the program also had a quick string of snapshots with interviews of actor Michael Douglas and army commander Colin Powell. The first episode witnesses the voice over by Liev Schreiber, whose enticing narration mingles well with the strong portrayal of pre-historic elements of America which laid the very foundation of the country.
The Sunday episode happens to be the first of 12 hour saga of “America : The Story Of Us” which narrated the story of “Rebels” ; the story which sets 120 years after Christopher Columbus set out for his first journey. It also traces the story of the tobacco farmers of Jamestown and the native Red Indians. “Rebels” is an intriguing tale that offers a sharp insight into the tobacco trade and how it gave birth to the “Land of Plenty”. The story takes a sharp turn with the immigrants forming thirteen colonies on the American soil. The theme of the docu series is focused to bring forward the history of the nation which has been crafted and re-crafted many a times and it’s a humble attempt by the makers to share the same tale with all Americans who are proud of themselves and their nation.
