      • Narrator: The Tennessee, in summer a placid river, in winter, a raging beast flooding its banks, eroding the land, spreading disease killing its residents. The plan: tame the river with dozens of dams and 200,000 workers. The fear: technical, social and political failure. Now, one of the greatest engineering feats of the century, the Tennessee Valley Authority, on Modern Marvels.
