Impossible Engineering

UKTV, 2021

Behind every seemingly impossible marvel of modern engineering is a cast of historical trailblazers who pioneered new building techniques, took risks on untested materials, and revolutionised their field. Now with 6 successful series, each episode celebrates a modern engineering marvel, from record-beating buildings, to ships and spacecraft, detailing how it’s built and how it works. As we revel in these modern day creations, we will also leap back in time to recount the stories of the exceptional engineers behind the historic technological advances that made the impossible, possible.
