    Atom Smasher, Season 2 | Episode 6

    It's Riley's biggest fix ever! A machine seventeen miles around - worth seven billion dollars! The Large Hadron Collider is the largest atom-smasher ever built - a colossal scientific instrument buried three hundred feet underground, spanning two countries, designed to recreate conditions a billionth of a second after the Big Bang. It could be our key to unlocking the secrets of the universe - except for one tiny thing: it's broken. Nine months ago the world watched as this mother of all atom-smashers almost self-destructed. Now Riley has an exclusive inside view - repairing the final critical component of the Large Hadron Collider and restarting the greatest scientific adventure since we landed a man on the Moon.

    Dome, Season 2 | Episode 9

    This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have allowed the world's largest spanning dome - the Oita Stadium in Japan - to be built. The Oita's colossal roof spans a mighty 274 metres. A steel, Teflon and titanium structure over 270 metres across, and 60 metres high, the Oita Stadium roof covers a sports stadium big enough to seat 43 thousand spectators. At the flick of a switch its seats retract to reveal a running track and its roof opens and closes like a giant eye. This film explores how this building was made possible through a series of six engineering breakthroughs. The film explores how six landmark buildings - including the Pantheon in Rome and Florence Cathedral - each feature a major technological innovation that allowed engineers to build bigger Domes. Using high-end computer generated imagery that makes up 50% of the film, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these super domes and the inventions that have enabled them to grow ever larger. Six ingenious leaps forward that enabled domes to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the World's BIGGEST."

    I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, Season 4 | Episode 5

    AS the season hits the halfway points, it's still anybody's game, and most of the fleet fights through exhaustion and fishes round-the-clock in the hopes that one or two great catches could launch them to the top. Three-time champions, Fishin' Frenzy, have slipped to third place after their last trip and Northern boat Pinwheel currently holds the lead. After struggling last season, Reels of Fortune is holding its own and riding high, but itching to keep the Northerners from seizing the crown. Meanwhile, the crews of the Doghouse, Foolish Pleasures and Little Shell all jockey to improve their positions, hoping to land a massive payday before midseason burnout brings them down. But on the Hot Tuna, TJ's got a different strategy - letting the others wear themselves down while he lays in wait for his big chance.

    Mountain Tsunami, Season 5 | Episode 2

    In 1960 construction of Europe's tallest dam is completed in in the Vajont Valley in Northern Italy - the jewel in the crown of an ambitious hydro-electric generation scheme. But as the new reservoir fills, a vast section of mountainside is dislodged and creeps toward the lake. The power company know the landslide has the potential to cause a devastating tsunami if it hits the water at speed, so they develop a plan to ease the landslide down by adjusting the level of the lake. For three years there are no problems, but in October 1963, the landslide suddenly accelerates - and slams into the reservoir as fast as a formula one car - creating a tsunami 200 meters high which overtops the dam and swamps the valley below - killing more than 2000 people. Seconds from Disaster reveals the systematic errors that led to tragedy - and sheds new light on the landslide mechanism that has intrigued scientists for 50 years.

    Disaster At Tenerife, Season 15 | Episode 3

    A terrorist bombing in the Canary Islands reroutes dozens of flights to the Spanish island of Tenerife. The tiny airport is swamped, and with so many planes parked in the taxiways, controllers instruct departing flights to use the airport's only runway to get into position for takeoff. Amongst the planes leaving, obscured by the heavy fog-are two 747s. But Pan Am Flight 1736 is still on the runway when KLM Flight 4805 careens toward it. Killing 583 people, the high-speed collision remains the single deadliest aviation accident of all time. Blame soon falls on one pilot, but as investigators sift through the evidence the true story behind the Tenerife disaster grows more and more complex.
