American Experience: Panama Canal
Finished in 1914, the 48-mile Panama Canal revolutionized the shipping industry by creating a shortcut for vessels headed from one coast of North America to the other. This documentary chronicles the struggle in creating this engineering marvel. Using archival footage and first-hand accounts, this "American Experience" program shows how the canal was built over 10 years -- and how more than 5,000 people lost their lives in the process.
