Abstract:

Set against the backdrop of China's Three Gorges region, this program discusses the most devastating construction project in history. In 1994, the People's Republic of China ordered the damming of the legendary Yangtze River with a massive wall of concrete and steel. A 15-year project creating the world's largest dam and hydroelectric power-plant. To China's leaders, the Three Gorges dam will propel the nation's economy into the 21st century. To critics worldwide it is a social and environmental disaster. Made without government authorization, this program investigates the profound changes the dam will bring to China's people, environment and history.
