Armchair Travel: Siberia -- North of Novosibirsk
This month we send you to Siberia with Phil Williams. Phil will describe what happened in 2000 when, with the Russian economy near collapse, he was asked to help decide the fate of the half-completed Stalin-era Boguchany Dam on the Angara River, the river that flows out of Lake Baikal.
He found himself dealing with the consequences of a little known saga of the Cold War, when the US and USSR were competing for the title of builders of the world’s biggest dams.
His story will lead us from the songs of Woody Guthrie to the arrest of Paul Manafort.
Presenter: Phil Williams is a NEXT Village SF member and retired civil engineer.
