America's Castles (A&E, 9-11 p.m.): America's version of European castles is probably the grand estates of the tycoons of the Industrial Age. Their homes were truly fit for kings, and some of the stories surrounding them rival European history in their gothic twists and turns.
Through old films, home movies, and still photography, this documentary gives viewers a look at the residential architecture, poking into unique rooms, gardens, stables, and other gracious areas. Some of the homes showcased are Jay Gould's ``Lyndhurst,'' George Washington Vanderbilt's ``Biltmore,'' Henry M. Flagler's ``Whitehall,'' and better-known places like Cornelius Vanderbilt's ``The Breakers'' and William Randolph Hearst's ``Hearst Castle,'' in San Simeon, Calif.
