General note

Supplied title based on contents of item. This material, comprising about 1,350 feet in total, was selected at BCARS from several cans of footage shot for (or out-takes from) THE NEW COLUMBIA and other related BC Hydro films. It was selected for preservation because it depicts aspects of the Columbia River project that receive less emphasis in the completed films, and provides additional footage of landscapes that disappeared when the area was flooded.
