Summary

Documentary exploring the life of the American industrialist, who founded the Ford Motor Company in 1903 and launched the first mass-produced car before the end of the decade. The programme touches on Ford's personality, exploring his capacity to be both generous - doubling his workers' wages with the Five Dollar Day - yet mean-spirited, by trapping them in a workplace where they were forbidden from talking or sitting down.
