    Can you hear this?

    Hello everyone,

    There are some extracts I can't hear that well in a documentary about Seoul's Cheonggyecheon stream.

    Here is what I hear:

    http://youtu.be/zYCfMpjXU5w?t=2m13s
    The Sangil (?) expressway, the first overhead highway in Korea...

    http://youtu.be/zYCfMpjXU5w?t=14m46s
    Cables are threaded through the holes to make a sleem (sleem? slean? sleam? slane?)

    http://youtu.be/zYCfMpjXU5w?t=18m45s
    (But even more significantly, this is an opportunity to bring back) an extremely ...sive (?) Korean history (that had almost been obliterated)

    http://youtu.be/zYCfMpjXU5w?t=20m34s
    Adding to the names (?) of displaced persons who crossed the stream

    http://youtu.be/zYCfMpjXU5w?t=24m34s
    (Crushers can have jaws that crack and overrides concrete ortious (autious?) steel

    http://youtu.be/zYCfMpjXU5w?t=28m6s
    The silk they removed was piled on either side.

    http://youtu.be/zYCfMpjXU5w?t=33m31s
    The order table (?) in the upstream of the (...?)

    http://youtu.be/zYCfMpjXU5w?t=44m23s
    But nothing can diminish the enfirer (infirer?) of this day.

    Can anyone hear these extracts better? Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Can you hear this?

    1) I couldn't quite hear him, but I think he meant Seoul Ring Expressway, and it was an overhead one if you were wondering.
    2) The cables are threaded to make a sling.
    3) He's talking about bringing back an extremely rare piece of Korean history (that had almost been obliterated).
    4) Adding to the millions of displaced persons...
    5) Crack and pulverise concrete and shear steel.
    6) The silt they removed...
    7) There is such a thing as a water table which is what I believe the Korean man was referring to. It was upstream of the river, the name of which was said (I think).
    8) Nothing can diminish the euphoria. It may have been confusing because of the narrator's use of /ɒ/ instead of /ɔ/.

    Wow, thank you so much Calis for taking the time to listen to those extracts and to correct me.

    It all makes perfect sense to me now.

    Have a great day.
