Niagara Falls

More than a celebration of a natural wonder, "Niagara Falls" is a study of human achievement and human folly on an epic scale.

A tale of affable lunacy and high drama, it’s also a story of danger and desire. The awesome Falls were the nation’s first great symbol, an emblem for the vast untamed continent, with its beauty and its limitless resources. But what happened to that beauty -- and those resources? Actress Mariette Hartley narrates.
