Actress Jodie Foster hosts this look at the Chinese government's plan to dam the Yangtze River. More than 35,000 people are working on what's said to be the largest construction program undertaken since the Great Wall of China was built. In addition to introducing major architects of the plan, this Discovery Channel video features interviews with some of the two million people who are being displaced from their homes by this project.
