Overview

American Experience: Panama Canal

This reflective documentary from the Public Broadcasting Company explores the history of the Panama Canal, a project completed in 1914, revolutionizing the world of travel, trade, and industry, by allowing ships traveling from one U.S. coast to another to pass underneath Central America - instead of circumnavigating the Southernmost tip of South America.
