A Man, a Plan, a Canal, Panama: Nova

1999 Rated NR 1hr

The award-winning NOVA team examines the Panama Canal's rich, dark and complicated history via rarely seen film footage and photographs documenting its creation. It turned out to be one of the most ambitious feats of engineering ever attempted. Begun in 1880 with a French initiative and continued years later by the Americans, the canal's construction took 30 years and claimed the lives of many workers along the way.
