    Icebreaker, Season 3 | Episode 2

    Weighing in at over 93 thousand tonnes, the Timofey Guzhenko is by far the biggest icebreaking ship to operate in the Arctic Ocean. It can smash through solid ice a metre and a half thick and pulverise blocks of ice the size of a car with its huge propellers. This film explores icebreaking ship technology through four historic engineering breakthroughs. The film explores the inner workings of landmark icebreakers, including the world's first icebreaker, the German Eisbrecher 1 and the powerful nuclear powered Soviet icebreaker, the Lenin. Each features a major technological innovation that allowed engineers to build bigger icebreakers. Using stunning CGI animation, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these machines. Four ingenious leaps forward that enabled icebreakers to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the Arctic Ocean'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.

    Do Or Die, Season 1 | Episode 4

    The changing seasons bring about new possibilities for the primitives as they continue to expand their horizons in the wild. The winter has finally lifted in Appalachia, but the rainy weather that marks the arrival of spring is proving a nuisance for Tony and Amelia. After repairing part of their water system damaged by a storm, they are delighted to find that most of their garden survived the unusually brutal winter. Thorn is taking advantage of the warmer weather by making an addition to his camp: a goat, which will provide him with protein from its milk. Further south in Georgia, Colbert tries to make up for the pelts he lost in the fire by setting new traps. Expecting to catch a beaver, he is surprised to find a turtle in his trap, but makes do. In California, Gabriels elder Tautaucho helps him hone his hunting technique. The lesson comes in handy one night when Gabe wakes up and shoots a raccoon out of a tree.

    Oil Rig, Season 2 | Episode 8

    This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have allowed the world's largest Oil Platform - the Perdido Spar in the Gulf of Mexico - to be built. The Perdido Spar sits in deeper water than any other oil platform, in an ocean over 2 kilometres deep. This floating factory is capable of drilling in any direction, and in depths of up to 3 kilometres below the sea floor. At maximum production it can generate enough oil daily to fill 132,000 cars with petrol. This film explores how this groundbreaking structure was made possible through a series of six engineering breakthroughs. The film explores how six landmark oil platforms - including the Beryl Alpha platform - each feature a major technological innovation that allowed oil platforms to be built and survive in ever deeper waters. 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 driven them deeper. Six ingenious leaps forward that enabled oil platforms to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the World's BIGGEST.
