This animated program centers on a small New England community similar to Pawtucket, Rhode Island, where Samuel Slater established America's first textile mill. Live action hosted by David Macaulay, takes viewers from Manchester, England, to Lowell, Massachusetts, explaining technological changes that transformed the making of textiles, a key component of the Industrial Revolution sweeping across Europe and America in the late 18th century.

"Mill Times" for the classroom

By Room C1

Comments about PBS David Macaulay: Mill Times DVD:

Students need to SEE the Industrial Revolution, not just read about it. This is a great resource for showing them mills, water wheels, steam engines, some of the hazards of industrialization, the key people involved, etc. And for any fans of the 'Liberty Kids' series, there is a fictional LK-ish cartoon woven into the documentary portions to highlight the arrival in the states of machinery and the impact on early America. And for frustrated instructors who wish classroom documentaries were less boring, Macaulay speaks clearly, at the right pace, not too fast, and not too much ... and with just the right amount of humor. My students LOVED it!
