    Space Station, Season 2 | Episode 3

    This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have enabled the worlds biggest space station the International Space Station to be built. The International Space Station orbits 200 miles above our heads, hurtling around the Earth at seventeen and a half thousand miles an hour. It is one of the greatest engineering feats of all time. Its crew performs vital experiments that will one day allow humans to live permanently in space. A test bed for future missions deeper into space, the space station could enable future generations to journey throughout the Solar System or even live on Mars. This film explores how the space station was made possible through a series of five engineering breakthroughs. The film features five landmark space stations that have contributed innovations to allow engineers to build bigger and explore the wonders of space travel. Using high-end computer generated imagery that makes up 50% of the film, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these structures and the inventions that have pushed the boundaries of science. Five ingenious leaps forward that enabled space stations to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the World

    Drain The Sunken Pirate City, 1

    Hidden beneath the waters of Jamaica's Kingston Harbour lie the ruins of the biggest pirate city of all time, Port Royal. With its reputation for extravagance, liquor and whores it was known as the "wickedest city on earth". On June 7th 1692 an earthquake followed by a tsunami destroyed the city; two thirds sank in minutes beneath the sea and 5,000 people died in the catastrophe and its aftermath. Since Port Royal's rediscovery in the C19th, numerous excavations of the site uncovered ruined buildings and pirate treasure. But now, Archaeologist, Dr Jon Henderson, uses the latest high tech scientific survey to reveal the full extent of the 33 acre sunken city for the first time. It will offer new visualisations of Port Royal and its devastating end. We will virtually drain the city and rebuild it in CGI to solve some of its long-standing mysteries. How did the home of the original pirates of Caribbean become the mercantile capital of the New World? Where do its sunken C17th forts now lie? And how the sand, on which Port Royal was built, was a geological catastrophe waiting to happen.
