Taped by WGBH Forum Network, reporter Neil Swidey visited Harvard Book Store to talk about his book Trapped Under the Sea: One Engineering Marvel, Five Men, and a Disaster Ten Miles Into the Darkness.

Swidey explains the tale of the five divers who were contracted to help finish the Boston pipeline that would eventually clean the harbor's water.  With limited time, oxygen, and space, these men completed an incredible feat that helped create one of the city's legacies.
