The history behind pioneering modern day mega structures.

Behind every seemingly impossible marvel of modern engineering is a cast of historic trailblazers who designed new building techniques, took risks on untested materials and revolutionized their field.

Impossible Engineering is a tribute to their achievements. Each episode details how giant structures, record-beating buildings, war ships and space crafts are built and work using captivating 3D graphics, archive and specially shot footage. As we revel in these modern day creations, we leap back in time to recount the stories of the exceptional engineers whose technological advances made it all possible. 

How would they have ever existed without the historical work of their ancestors? Interviews with their great advocates bring engineering history to life and retell how these incredible accomplishments shaped our modern world.
