    Prison, Season 3 | Episode 4

    Holding over 1400 of America's most dangerous prisoners, the North Branch Correctional Institution is one of the most secure prisons in the world. Over two thirds of the men at the prison have killed and most dream of escape. They are locked up in cells able to withstand bomb blasts and the prison is brimming with technology designed to keep them safe from each other. This film explores how the prison was made possible through a series of four historic engineering breakthroughs. The film explores the inner workings of four landmark prisons, including the formidable Tower of London and infamous Alcatraz Island. Each features a major technological innovation that allowed engineers to build more and more secure prisons. The film explores the development of perimeter fortifications, layers of surveillance and impenetrable cell design. Using stunning CGI animation, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these prisons and the inventions that have enabled them to become more secure. Four ingenious leaps forward that enabled prisons to become SAFER, TOUGHER and BIGGER.

    Tunnel, Season 2 | Episode 5

    This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have allowed the world's longest Tunnel - the Gotthard Base Tunnel - to be built. The Gotthard Base Tunnel stretches 57 kilometres through the heart of the Swiss Alps. It is deeper than any other tunnel on Earth and paves the way for a vital high-speed rail link between Zurich and Milan. This film follows 2000 workers and four gigantic tunnel boring machines working flat-out to excavate 24 million tonnes of mountain rock to complete the tunnel. This film explores how this structure was made possible through a series of six engineering breakthroughs. We reveal how six landmark tunnels - including the Thames Tunnel and Channel Tunnel - each feature a major technological innovation that allowed engineers to bore ever further into the earth. Using high-end computer generated imagery that makes up 50% of the film, we'll reveal the incredible stories behind these tunnels and the inventions that have enabled tunnels to grow ever longer. Six ingenious leaps forward that enabled tunnels to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the World's BIGGEST.

    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.
