Editorial Reviews

Golden Gate Bridge -- The Golden Gate Bridge is the most popular man-made tourist attraction in the United States, as well as a vital artery for the city of San Francisco. But at one time, critics said it could never be built. Explore the incredible story behind the world's most famous and spectacular bridge in this definitive program. From the start the project looked impossible the span of the bay was too wide; the shore was too unstable, and the tides too turbulent. See incredible footage of its construction, as storms battered workers and fog shrouded construction. And learn why engineer Joseph B. Strauss' plans proved to be a masterpiece of design and function. For in four years, the longest, highest, most spectacular suspension bridge on Earth opened to the public, and went on to become one of the greatest symbols of American ingenuity. St. Louis Arch -- It soars 630 feet above the Mississippi River, offering a symbolic entrance into America's heartland. On a busy summer day, 6,400 people will take the memorable ride to the top for sweeping views of St. Louis, the Mississippi and the surrounding area. The Gateway Arch is one of the most distinctive and familiar landmarks in America. But none of the millions of visitors have ever seen it the MODERN MARVELS® way! Extensive photos and film clips of its construction, interviews with the inventors, engineers and contractors who transformed the dream into a reality and a behind-the-scenes tour of its inner workings make this the ultimate video history of the arch. From the story of how a college dropout designed the unique tram system that takes visitors to the top to a look at the arch's ongoing maintenance and upkeep, THE ST. LOUIS ARCH examines every aspect of this stunning structure. Nothing like it had ever been built before--and nothing since has come close to duplicating it.
