I would prefer not so much musical noise, though.

This is one of several programs that explore engineering and construction projects that push the envelope in some way. Taller buildings, deeper tunnels, bridges with longer and wider spans using novel materials or newly- or specially-developed construction techniques are at the core of these programs. Other that run in the same vein are "Extreme Engineering" and "Build It Bigger".

I spent 40+ years working with the industries portrayed in these shows and have recommended them to friends with small children to promote a learning experience with bonding time. They have some quality time and it gives children knowledge of what is in the world to aspire to. This program and books (DVD) like the "The Ascent of Man by Jacob Bronowski" can give children a head start in life. These are adult level programs and require an adult to provide explanations.
