Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's three-part series explores the extraordinary story of what happened when a nation founded on freedom outlawed the sale of liquor—and the disastrous unintended consequences that followed.

Raising thought-provoking questions about the proper role of government and the limits of legislating morality, the program mixes expert commentary with the stories of people ranging from temperance activists, to bootleggers and gangsters, to flappers, to families who stomped grapes in basements and made moonshine in their backyards.
