A Land Between Rivers
A Land Between Rivers tells the story of central California between the San Joaquin and Kings Rivers, which has played a critical role in determining the destiny of both California and the West. It is a story of transformation; where the nexus of land, water, and people seeking a better future have created the most productive agricultural region on earth. The program reveals the human and environmental sacrifices in the shadow of this success, and shows how issues of concern in times past remain relevant today as central California faces the future.
Narrated by Rita Moreno, the program uses aerials, archival stills, rare footage, and interviews with long time residents and historians to tell this unique story.
