Synopsis

Ellis Island: The History of Ellis Island
Originally aired on the History Channel and hosted by Mandy Patinkin, Ellis Island: The History of Ellis Island uses a combination of archival footage, interviews, and photographs in order to provide an in-depth look at how one of America's favorite landmarks came to be. Known as "the golden doors" by some and "the isle of tears" by others, the creation of Ellis Island would ultimately alter the course of United States history and its population. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Ellis Island: The Immigrant Experience
Originally aired on the History Channel and hosted by Mandy Patinkin, Ellis Island: The Immigrant Experience offers a comprehensive look at what the immigration process was like when America officially opened its doors to all other nationalities. In addition to old photographs and archival footage, interviews from the Ellis Island Oral History Project -- that is, a group dedicated to preserving the firsthand accounts of immigrants -- are also included. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
