"A high quality series, great selection of projects."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'll admit, I'm a bit of a sucker for these types of shows – documentaries about massive, amazing construction projects. I expected this DVD to be great, and the BBC did not disappoint.

The stories are not told in traditional documentary style, instead, actors, sets and special effects are used to re-enact the seven historical construction projects based on true records, diaries and scrapbooks kept by the actual people involved. A lot of thought and detail has been put into each story, and it seems that almost no expense was spared in making a quality series. You really become immersed in the story, and each show feels more like a short film rather than a documentary, and I've thoroughly enjoyed them all.

"Excellent production by the BBC"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This DVD set is excellently produced by the BBC, and one of the most interesting docudramas I have ever seen. Great for kids to learn a bit about history too.

"Great feats of achievements worth watching"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Excellent history achievements for those who love asking how did they do that.


An encounter with the most brilliant pioneers of the industrial age. Recreating their stories of burning ambition, extravagant dreams, passion and rivalry as great minds clashed, this programme delves into the history of seven epic monuments spanning the industrial revolution.

Using spectacular CGI, the seven stories that are revealed here are:

  • the SS Great Eastern
  • the London sewer systems
  • the Bell Rock Lighthouse
  • the US Transcontinental Railway
  • the Panama Canal
  • the Hoover Dam
  • the Brooklyn Bridge.
