The Water Is Coming

Dordrecht and water have always been inextricably linked. With a podwalk via NTR's free 'Het Water Komt' app, you will learn more about this. Winfried Baijens takes you back in time with this historic water walk. Through your phone, history comes to life, you hear stories about the future, and you see the rise of the water in augmented reality. 

Four-part documentary series

On the occasion of the 70th commemoration of the 1953 flood disaster, NTR has produced a four-part documentary series "The water is coming. Using archive material and penetrating eyewitness accounts, the four documentaries map out how the disaster was able to happen, how insufficient anticipation of the impending danger was made beforehand, and what we have learned from the disaster. Winfried Baijens presents Het water komt.

In the free podwalk app Het water comes seven GPS-guided audio tours with stories about cities and villages where violent flood disasters took place: so too did Dordrecht. Winfried Baijens takes you back in time on location.
