        On the Line, Full Program Description

        This text discusses the content of the program People's Century: "On the Line." On the Line refers to the introduction of the assembly line into factories, which ushered in an era of mass production. This introduction touches upon the early growth automotive industry, which was the first to use the assembly line. Eyewitness quotes are used to illustrate how the assembly line forever altered the lives of workers and consumers (1908-1945).
