American Experience: Hoover Dam
Built in the midst of the Great Depression under dangerous working conditions, the Hoover Dam has been described as one of the world's greatest engineering feats. American Experience: Hoover Dam is a 60-minute historical documentary that chronicles the dam's construction. Archival footage shows workers fighting intense heat, unrelenting dust, and dizzying heights as they pieced together the structure that would bring electricity to the American West. Program highlights include interviews with historians and witnesses as well as a comprehensive description of the engineering problems associated with the project. ~ Kathleen Wildasin, Rovi
