The Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River in China is the largestpublic works project in the history of mankind. Its size, scale andpotential are unprecedented in engineering history. The dam is in itsfinal stages of completion – but will it work?
Join DiscoveryChannel cameras – granted exclusive access to the site – as theydocument the dramatic effect this massive construction project willhave on the surrounding countryside. Temples, villages, cities and sometwo million people stand to be displaced by the hydroelectric monster.With the dam already producing electricity and beginning to take onwater, economic and flood control benefits are becoming clear. Still,opponents point toward the loss of precious archaeological sites andenvironmental stress on the region.
It's an insider's look at atrue engineering marvel 10 years in the making – and the human andcultural ramifications that have some wondering if it's all worth it.
