Southern California and the Journey to the Skies and Space

How did Southern California become the aerospace capital of the world?  What were the consequences of this development for the region, for the nation and for aerospace itself? Narrated by Emmy Award® winning actor Tony Goldwyn and written and directed by two-time Primetime- and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jones, “Blue Sky Metropolis,”, is a series of four one-hour episodes that examine the largest Southern California-grown industry that, nevertheless, has received only a fraction of the attention heaped upon the Hollywood entertainment business.
