Summary:
They are arguably the most important public works projects in history. Without aqueducts, many of the world's great cities and civilizations would never have existed. For thousands of years, we have shaped the world and forged history by controlling the flow of water. From the continent-spanning constructions of Ancient Rome to the lifeline that quenches Los Angeles's thirst, MODERN MARVELS takes a probing look at the history and technology of AQUEDUCTS. See how ancient civilizations solved their water problems with exquisite networks of channels and pipes, some laid centuries before the birth of Christ. Relive the long fight to bring water to Los Angeles, where 100,000 men labored to fulfill the vision of one man, and a great city was truly born. Extensive footage shows the construction of the massive system that brings water across hundreds of miles of harsh desert. Finally, get an up-close look at the most modern water systems on earth, high-tech marvels that cost billions of dollars, but without which cities would die of thirst.
