<p>Director <a class="guestlink" href="/people/r/?n=Steven+Ives">Steven Ives</a> talks about his new documentary, “<a href="http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/coulee/?flavour=mobile" target="_blank">Grand Coulee Dam</a>,” about a public works project that played a central role in transforming the Northwest and was the largest hydroelectric power producing facility in the world when it was completed in March 1941. But the dam prevented access to one of the greatest salmon rivers in the world, and the native people who lived along the Columbia suffered a profound cultural decline. “Grand Coulee Dam” premieres on PBS on April 3 at 8 pm.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/wnyc_lopate/~4/jSQWeGJKKVo" height="1" width="1" />
