American RadioWorks (ARW) is the highly acclaimed documentary unit of American Public Media. Its hour-long specials provide in-depth reporting on public affairs, social and cultural subjects and the 20th-century experience.
Until recently, one of the few places where the American Dream still seemed possible was Las Vegas. Each month, thousands of people flocked there, lured by the promise of good jobs and a chance to own a home. It was the fastest growing city in the country. But now, Las Vegas has a new distinction—the nation’s highest foreclosure rate. American RadioWorks looks at the roots and the fall-out of the Las Vegas foreclosure crisis, and tells the stories of residents trying to build new lives, now that their old dreams have failed.
