Amazing Story

By DocuJunky

Comments about PBS American Experience: Panama Canal DVD:

This documentary takes a comprehensive look at all the events leading to the realization of the canal. The story of the role of the canal in world history has been artfully described. An epic event is well documented here by PBS.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Panama Canal DVD:

Being an old Georgia Tech civil engineer and having spent several months in the Canal Zone myself, I found this DVD a fascinating and well done account of the project. It is a good mix of both the engineering challenges and the human challenges of operating in such a hostile environment. Completion of the Panama Canal was a monumental accomplishment, almost as much so as the moon landings 55 years later.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Panama Canal DVD:

My grandfather was a Canal Worker from Barbados, in the 1920's so the documentary filled in some blanks of the records we already had. Great documentary!
