Engineering Masterpieces
27 February 2006 | by mpjones-2See all my reviews

This series showed what truly inspired engineers (and their wives) can achieve. All episodes are essential viewing for anyone aspiring to be an engineer. Their imagination, courage, dedication and persistence should be an inspiration to us all.

Each episode has amazing on-the-job footage. This footage is interfaced with expert and insightful documentary commentary, creatively supporting the exposition of the marvels being created.

The historically accurate (seemingly) and seamlessly integrated acting provides for riveting viewing.

A must see!
