Not sure, what was it about? I have seen most of them and I like the show a lot.
It was about the building of the dams,and what it did to demolish the Indian way of life.
Also: The destruction of our salmon runs. from the dalles too the salmon river.

I've seen that one before and it is a good show. Wish the river was a pristeen as in the day before the dams.

Watch for the Documentry on the Rough River , We just dropped 2 dams just this last summer.
The Gold ray dam, and the savage rapids dam. soon were gonna drop the lost creek res. then the rough river
will be 100% free of all obstructions. (wild again)
 
My buddy, Napa Steve, picks worms out of mud puddles during the rainy season and puts them in the grass! He says the only thing that he doesn't like about MDing is killing worms.

Some dams serve no purpose anymore and some are for hydroelectric power generation. Power is good and jobs are good but we are killing our salmon and they will be on the endangered list soon because of dams. Which is more important, jobs and power or fish. The Pacific Northwest has always had an abundance of salmon. They support commercial fishermen and bring in big $$ to the state in revenues. Sport fishermen buy licenses and bait and fishing gear, boats, gas, oil launch fees. This is big $$ for the State too.
Besides fish, the dams have caused problems with erosion and stream flows and destroy natural habitat.
You decide if dams have a purpose other than making lives miserable. It is a very controversial discussion. It is a very complex issue. My thought is that mother nature survived a long time in abundance before man screwed it all up.

Yep, Population control problem. Don't worry, no power will eliminate a few.
