AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: A documentary recalling the history of the Panama Canal which, at the time of its construction, was the costliest undertaking in human history. The French began the canal in 1880 but were ultimately defeated by the enormity of the task and the virulence of the endemic tropical diseases. Their legacy was a partially completed canal and an immense financial debacle. The successful completion by the Americans in 1914 marked the end of the Victorian age and the beginning of 'the American Century'.
