Author, musician, raconteur Bland Simpson leads the viewer on a lively 300 year ramble through North Carolina history.

Moving North Carolina is the story of transportation in our state from ancient foot trails to modern superhighways. But far more than a tale of vessels and vehicles, roadways and rails, it is the very human story of how transportation was key to who we are, where we came from, how we got here, and why we live where we do. It is the story of men and women who envisioned a better way of life and led the way in making the vision a reality.


Join host Bland Simpson, one of our finest story-tellers, for a lively, 300-year ramble through history as improving mobility is the driving force in our state's evolution from a spattering of isolated, self-reliant farms and small towns to this one special place we call North Carolina.
