    Background: Rumania and Yugoslavia have signed an agreement in Bucharest for the joint development of the Djerdap Gorge, on the river Danube. The scheme involves the construction of a large hydro-electric project and a ship canal through the narrow Gorge.

    The scheme is to take several years to complete and involves the building of ship lifts, similar to those in use at the Wilson Dam, in Tennessee. The lifts will raise and lower barges and lighters plying the River Danube from the Lake to be formed by the Dam to the river below.

    The film shows the Djerdap area and models of the hydro-electric plant and the proposed ship lifts.
