Roll On Columbia: Woody Guthrie's Columbia River Songs (2006)

from Talking History website:

"In early May of 1941, Woody Guthrie was employed by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) on the Columbia River. 
The BPA hired him to write songs celebrating the work of the Administration in building dams producing and making available to millions cheap electricity. Guthrie wrote 26 songs during the month that followed, including such classics as Pastures of Plenty and Roll on Columbia

Michael O'Rourke produced this radio documentary for Oregon Public Broadcasting. In 2000, a documentary film on the same subject was produced by the University of Oregon's Knight Library Media Services and the School of Journalism and Communication.
