  • (The Desert Speaks Series) Most people would start running if they saw millions of gallons of water coming at them. The Desert Speaks crew decided to start videotaping. No, this isn't the latest "disaster movie." It's a program documenting the historic release of flood waters from the Glen Canyon Dam into the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon. Called the biggest experiment ever on the river, this man-made flood sought to restore a natural balance to the river's ecosystem. Looks at the preparation by researchers, the flood itself, and the results of this epic experiment.
