Originally broadcast on PBS as episodes of American experience in 2018.

This four-hour mini-series tells the story of one of the most popular and influential forms of entertainment in American history. Drawing upon a vast and rich visual archive, the program follows the rise and fall of the gigantic, traveling tented railroad circus, recounting the era when Circus Day could shut down a town, and circus stars were among the most famous people in the country.
