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. 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....

This is a program about construction. There isn't even the slightest mention of the engineering that went into the design of the structure. No hint of the materials selection, stresses on components, design tradeoffs, etc. You never even see an engineer on site being asked questions as the structure is built.

I have a new appreciation for huge engineering feats after watching this! I will never look at a bridge the same way. Fascinating! Highly recommended!

Very interesting about a tunnel from Italy to Switzerland. It was awesome to watch how they dug through the Alps.

Although the catch phrases on these shows get tiresome ("...but, there is a problem" must be repeated at least ten times per show), they are good quality productions that I've learned a lot from regarding the concepts of big-project engineering.

As someone in the engineering field I enjoyed it but my wife who is not found it a bit uninteresting.
