WTTW 11 producer, host, and Chicago Architecture Foundation docent Geoffrey Baer returns to the Chicago River to reveal the dramatic changes that have taken place along the banks since his original television tour in 1995. Covering more than twice the geographic distance of his first tour, Baer travels from the farthest reaches of the industrial South Branch, past downtown skyscrapers, and up the scenic forks of the North Branch to the river's surprising origin -- a sewer pipe near Waukegan. Visit the historic neighborhoods, see the amazing architecture, and meet the colorful characters that make up Chicago's rich past as you explore each bend of the Chicago River. DVD. Running time: 120 minutes
