This winter, PBS and Public Media Distribution will take audiences back in time to one of America’s most important eras in another new episode of its hit history-based series American Experience.

American ExperienceThe Gilded Age is currently scheduled to be released Tuesday, Feb. 6.  The story, which will be available on DVD and Digital HD, takes audiences to the transitional period between the end of the 19th century and the start of 20th Century.  It was during this period that America became a leader in the production of food, coal, oil and steel.  That growth also led to one of the nation’s widest income gaps.  That gap also led to discussions on wealth distribution, government control of that distribution and more, including questions of immigration and opportunity — questions which are just as relevant today as they were at that time.

American ExperienceThe Gilded Age runs two hours on one disc.  It will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered online now at a reduced price of $19.99 via PBS’ online store.  More information on this and other episodes of American Experienceis available online now at:
