Lewis & Clark: Crossing the Centuries

Lewis & Clark: Crossing the Centuries traces the Lewis and Clark expedition’s route from St.Louis, Missouri to the Oregon Coast. The documentary features stunning aerial shots of the dramatic terrain the expedition faced, including Idaho’s Lolo, Lemhi Passes and the White Cliffs area along the Missouri River in Montana. The program also captures scenes that appear much as the explorers knew them, and documents 200 years of alterations brought about by dams, highways, cities, farms and ranches. Crossing the Centuries, narrated by Academy Award-winning actor George Kennedy, features Lewis and Clark historians, chronicles opening events for the bicentennial celebration and examines the legacy of this landmark 1804 trip.
