    Millau Sky Bridge, Season 2 | Episode 3

    Richard Hammond reveals the engineering inspirations behind the tallest road bridge in the world - the Millau Viaduct, in France. He fires three quarters of a million volts from his finger tips to see how the power of lightning cut the steel structure quickly and accurately. The huge piers - 340 metres high, and which would look down on the Eiffel Tower - were positioned to millimetre accuracy with the system that located lost nuclear submarines. The longest road-deck in the world was launched along the top of the piers - and required the slipperiest substance known to man - Teflon; not even a gecko can stick to it. Steel cables hold the bridge in shape - born of a series of mining accidents. And to allow the bridge to expand a metre and a half in the summer sun the engineers turned to an ancient Celtic boat-building technique which can make concrete as bendy as wood.

    Forbidden Tomb of Genghis Khan

    Mongolia is being plundered. Illegal gold mining operations are proliferating across its vast landscape, desecrating its soil and polluting its rivers. The lost tomb of Genghis Khan, Mongolia's best-kept secret and only remaining tie to its spiritual and political forefather, could be unearthed and destroyed at any time. Can American engineer and explorer ALBERT LIN, equipped with cutting-edge technology and just a handful of obscure clues from ancient texts, find and protect the tomb of the Great Khan before it is destroyed? Albert's expedition has the blessing of the Mongolian government, but he has been forbidden to dig. In THE SEARCH FOR GENGHIS KHAN, we join Albert on a quest that seems impossible: to find a body without a shovel, somewhere in a territory that measures thousands of square miles in area. Lin's research leads him to search for a lost mountain-the Burkhan Khaldun-in the heart of the "forbidden zone." But to get there he must first conquer a series of natural obstacles, including an inhospitable landscape, swollen rivers, and violent storms. It is on the Burkhan Khaldun that Lin makes his most remarkable discovery, one that may solve an 800-year old mystery and cause waves in the archaeological community for decades to come.
