Confronting The Gorges

The Olympics start this week in Beijing, an event where China looks to present itself to the world as a modern and relevant nation. There's no question China is a force economically and politically as they continue their meteoric development, but it's not without costs. This 20 minute documentary looks at how the Three Gorges Dam, the biggest hydroelectric project ever built, is forcing China to manage a difficult balance between growth and environmental preservation.
