The Tennessee Valley Before TVA 
Overview:
This documentary explores the area of the Tennessee Valley in the years prior to the TVA. In a land ravaged by flood, the people of the Tennessee Valley found their salvation in water.  In the depths of the Depression, they built a foundation for prosperity.  In the shadow of the past, they ushered in the Atomic Age.  This is the story of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), that has touched the lives of so many people- and generations to come. Told through the eyes and experience of the people themselves, Built for the People is the story of a grand vision for the Valley.  A vision made possible by a region of people who gave their souls to make that vision a reality. Today, the Valley as we know it- all its magnificence, all its vitality and all its prosperity- stands as a testament to what can be achieved when men and women dedicate their lives to change the course of history. This is part of the Currents of Change program.  For additional resources, search ALEX for "Currents of Change" or go to http://currentsofchange.net/.
