Indestructible Mega Structures (Nat Geo) – Starts 11th December
A show similar in content to Impossible Engineering, where each episode looks at a recently constructed structure that has been built to withstand extreme conditions.
In it the programme looks at the previous structure that stood before and the events that caused it to fail, then with engineers explaining the weak points and how they circumvented it in the new build. Along with cutting back to the experts it then show how the new structure was constructed and what new safety feature are put in place to stop it failing in the future.
It’s an interesting enough watch, and an easy way to waste 45 minutes.
