Summary
Groundbreaking engineering projects are shaping the world we live in and this compelling BBC documentary series offers a fascinating and exciting insight into their creation. Combining unprecedented access and observational documentary techniques with powerful CGI footage. Voyages of construction examines three extraordinary engineering projects that are all very different but have two things in common:incredibly complex technologypeople with highly specialised skills. Subjects range from building nuclear submarines and jumbo jet engines to secret firefighting robots and stealth wind turbines. Each episode reveals how one particular project is planned and executed, exploring the business behind creating the best and most lucrative technology in the face of fierce worldwide competition. All are projects that cost millions - or even billions - of pounds, so getting it wrong just isn't an option. Voyages of construction is a BBC series combining the topics of engineering with elements of business and science and technology.
