Chicago After People

This was first broadcast in 2009, but we're just catching up with it now (!) after seeing it re-posted on YouTube recently.

At the time, John Kass wrote in the Tribune:

"And without humans to tend it, Chicago wasn't 'Urbs in Horto' anymore. It was just plain old wild Horto.

"Paris, too, the Eiffel Tower cracking to the ground, and Seattle, the Space Needle falling, and New York, the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge rotting, snapping, all of it plunging into the East River in the History Channel special Life After People.

"There was Horto everywhere, Horto relentlessly triumphant, as befits seamless mass televised celebrations of the sacrament of Earth Day."

Let's take a look.
