Contents Notes
"From the Gold Rush to the Golden Gate Bridge, and through World's Fairs and World Wars, San Francisco Bay has been central to the identity of one of the world's leading economic, academic, recreational and cultural regions. Narrated by Robert Redford, Saving the Bay explores the history of the San Francisco Bay with four one-hour episodes tracing the Bay from its geologic origins following the last Ice Age through years of catastrophic exploitation to restoration efforts of today. This spectacular high definition series takes viewers on an unforgettable journey around the waters of the Bay Area's most treasured natural resource. The series also highlights the story of three women who rallied an entire region to save San Francisco Bay from becoming little more than a river. Spearheaded by three women in the East Bay hills, the story of how the Bay was saved is not only compelling in its own right, but offers an invaluable lesson about how ordinary citizens can have an impact on protecting and enhancing our natural environment."--Container.
