Join the fight to keep floodwaters from swamping Chicago, then head south for a mysterious journey into the world of underwater caves.
In 1992, as floodwaters raged in the Midwest, the Army Corps of Engineers worked against time and the rising river to prevent Chicago from being devastated by the waters. THE GREAT CHICAGO FLOOD is an up-close look at how the engineers managed to keep the city dry using two simple algebra equations and cutting-edge technology.
Next, get a glimpse into the dark, mysterious world of underwater cave diving perhaps the most dangerous form of exploration today. DIVE INTO DARKNESS follows biologist Jill Yager as she descends into a "blue hole" that reaches deep below the ocean floor in the Bahamas. In the otherworldly chambers of this cave, she has found a previously unknown species. Is it a living fossil or an entirely new discovery?
