    George Orwell once warned of a future where "Big Brother is watching." Today in London, he is. But his is not an evil eye. Instead, its an eye toward averting disaster. Not one but three great rivers flow through London - by air, water, and land. They are the keys to keeping this MegaCity alive and running: (1) London has the world's busiest international airspace; (2) The Thames is the world's busiest urban river; and (3) The streets of London are so jammed, you have to pay to drive on them. One major accident anywhere can cripple this MegaCity, where keeping people and goods moving is the key to its survival. Yet every minute -- in three dimensions -- millions of people and vehicles are on a collision course. To head off disaster, London deploys high-tech eyes everywhere, constantly scanning the skies, the river, and the ground. This is a view of London like nothing ever seen before: going behind the scenes to watch the watchers and their incredible technologies, in all three dimensions: from the hurtling and congested heights of air traffic control, to the murky and dangerous depths beneath the Thames. As it hurtles toward a collision course with the future, London cant take its eyes off the prize

    The Alhambra is the greatest example of Islamic military architecture in Europe. In 1238, the Moorish Sultan Muhammad I withdrew to Granada, in southern Spain, to create a bastion that would protect his family against Christian attack. It was here, against the backdrop of war and terror that Muhammad began a construction process that would span more than one and a half centuries and create one of the most beautiful palaces in the world. But just how did he construct such an impregnable fortress? How did he raise water from the river 100 meters below, to irrigate its gardens? And why is Greek geometry a crucial part of this Muslim masterpiece? Alhambra will bring to life the ingenious engineering solutions and treacherous political betrayals that gave birth to what is arguably the most perfect example of Moorish architecture in existence.

This Mega-city violates the first rule of real estate: location. On one side: one of the world's most earthquake-prone hotspots. On the other: one of the world's most active volcanoes. And beneath their feet - a shaky foundation of landfill. To Mother Nature, Mexico City is one big target. And any moment, the Big One could hit. But against the most destructive force of nature, the city is tapping the power of science. From subways to freeways, Mexico City is harnessing cutting-edge technology to build in safety. Towering over the city is Latin America's tallest skyscraper - built to ride out an earthquake on giant shock absorbers. Most of all, the city is now armed with a slender line of defense: an earthquake detection system, built to give the city a one-minute warning before a quake arrives. Because today, the question isn't if another earthquake will hit - but when.
