China's 3 Gorges Dam Construction & Its Effects

1hr 25min documentary. Another 11 months left to finish this year with no viewing of regular tv & its time wasting commercials. The part on historical & cultural relics being lost & changes taking place so fast... community life vanishing... It is like is talking about S'pore as well.

- reservoir of water behind the dam is longer than the Grand Canyon
- dam wall thick enough to withstand conventional missile attack
- world's biggest power plant's 32 turbine generators produce as much electricity as 18 nuclear power plants
- Look at the motorbike factory. A glimpse of manufacturing capacity that eclipses that of USA
