GRAND CANYON WEST, AZ (May 29, 2008) Grand Canyon West, owned by the Hualapai Tribe, in partnership with National Geographic Channel has announced production of a ?making of? documentary using never-before-seen footage of the design and construction of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, the glass walkway nearly 4000 feet (1200 meters) above the floor of the Grand Canyon in Arizona. The documentary will be aired in high definition exclusively on the National Geographic Channel and inside the Skywalk Visitor Center. The premiere is scheduled for early 2009.

The hour long special will be an in-depth documentary focusing on the technical aspects of the Grand Canyon Skywalk which will feature the design and construction from start to finish. Much of the footage that will be used to create the program has never been seen by the public, making this documentary the first true behind the scenes look at one of the world?s most unique structures and engineering marvels.
