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. Episode 5: The recovery of New Orleans from the devastation brought by Hurricane Katrina will take years, if not decades. But before long-term solutions can be debated, designed and implemented, immediate repairs are desperately needed to keep New Orleans dry. Hurricane Season 2006 is not far away, and the engineers are struggling to get ready. How hard is their job? Says one engineer, "It's like building the Panama Canal - in eight months!" Join Extreme Engineering and host Danny Forster as we plunge deep inside the emergency struggle to plug the leaks --- Danny will work alongside the tireless dawn-to-dusk team from the Army Corps of Engineers as they race to repair two critical levees, and the first new floodgate.... each emergency project with its own set of challenges....

Great show and very decent host. Almost as good as Dirty Jobs' Mike Rowe, but only a few notches lower :)Published 15 months ago by Y.B.
