Where Did the Colorado Go?
The giant Colorado river runs through some of the world's most spectacular scenery: from its source in the Rocky Mountains through the Grand Canyon and the colourful sands of the Painted Desert towards its original outlet in the Gulf of California. But the Colorado no longer reaches the sea. Tamed into a mere trickle for the sake of illuminating Los Angeles, it finally sinks into the sands of the Mexican desert.
The Colorado's recent history of irrigation schemes, hydro-electric schemes and dams built in the wrong place show what mismanagement can do to any river in any part of the world. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Producer simon CAMPBELL JONES.
