A new series exploring the engineering behind “mega structures” – including tall buildings, ships and cutting-edge trains – is to be shown on Yesterday, UKTV’s factual channel.
Produced by Twofour, the six-part Impossible Engineering will screen in May.
Adrian Wills, General Manager for Yesterday, says the show “is one of Yesterday’s flagship shows for 2015, paving the way for the channel’s expansion into broader factual content.”
Each episode details how giant structures, record-beating buildings, and the world’s most cutting-edge ships, trains and planes are built and work using 3D graphics, archive and specially shot footage.
As this series revels in these modern day creations, it leaps back in time to recount the stories of the exceptional engineers whose technological advances made it all possible.
Neil Edwards, Executive Producer, Twofour, added: “We’re delighted that ‘Impossible Engineering’ will be making its debut on Yesterday.
“The show’s blend of mind-blowing modern engineering and thrilling historical innovations couldn’t have found a more perfect home.”
