From NPT-Channel 8:
We hope you'll tune tonight at 7:00 p.m. as NPT premieres Volume Two of Nashville: The 20th Century in Photographs. Volume Two picks up where the first installment left off, with Nashville crawling out from under the Great Depression. The end of the 1930s would see citywide progress as a result of The New Deal and the Works Progress Administration, the development of the airport at Berry Field, and a thriving rail business at Union Station. The documentary then traces Nashville during World War II and the explosion of the suburbs in the 1940s and culminates in the founding of Music Row in the 1950s. Through interviews with locals and historians and photographs from the archives of The Tennessean, the Tennessee State Library and Archives, the Library of Congress, and more, Nashville: The 20th Century in Photographs, Volume 2 traces a pivotal time in our city's history. NPT will also present a primetime encore of the documentary this Sunday night at 7:00 p.m.
Above, you'll find the trailer for last year's first installment.
