Editorial Reviews

Extreme Engineering unveils some of the most ambitious architectural plans of our times. Some are theoretical; others are in the works. But all of these modern marvels pose challenges that stretch the definition of what's possible. Watch as jaw-dropping computer animation and first-hand accounts from builders, designers and engineers breathe life into the most extreme construction projects ever conceived. Season 1 - DVD Set (Part 2): To most of the world, the majestic Alps present a scene of wonder. But to European merchants and truckers, they present a troublesome and costly roadblock. Enter the ambitious AlpTransit Tunnel and follow a team of miners as they risk death beneath billions of pounds of mountain to complete this project. From beneath the Alps, we travel to Holland, where we reveal the inner workings the enormous barriers designed to protect this low-lying country from the harsh North Sea. While the seas can be rough, it certainly did not stop engineers in Hong Kong from building a new international airport - 16 miles out to sea! Learn how they were able to accomplish this engineering marvel. Nearly a century old, the Panama Canal is one of the most notable engineering feats of our time. Follow teams of engineers as they attempt to widen the Canal to permit more ship traffic to travel efficiently between two oceans. Finally, witness the final stages of one of the largest, most technically challenging infrastructure projects in American history: Boston's Big Dig.
