Rate this:
Rich in history, the Rhine feeds Europe's collective identity-as well as its divisions. Flowing from Switzerland through Austria, Germany, France, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands, the river intersects a multitude of towns and cities in the process. This program follows the Rhine on its multifaceted journey and examines economic, political, environmental, and historical issues surrounding it. Viewers travel from Rotterdam, where vessels laden with goods leave Europe, to Hinterrhein, a Swiss town beneath the Rhinewaldhorn glacier. Along the way, the program examines invasive species, the threat of chemical spills, the horror of Kristallnacht, and the immigrant experience in Europe.
