Excellent series
9 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an inspired series. Each episode has a great story to tell about the human and technical problems in realising some of the world's most monumental structures. It should inspire a new generation of civil engineers, though I suppose most big projects these days are less arduous for the participants, because of better technology and better working practices.

The depiction of the projects by reconstruction and by special effects was awesome. Gone are the days when you could see that you were looking at a model; you really could believe that they built another one of each just so they could film it properly this time. Mention should also be made of the part that the music played in stirring the emotions of grandeur and achievement. Another excellent demonstration of why the BBC charges us Brits to own a television. It's worth every penny.
