Engineering And Architecture On Smithsonian

Stunt – Saturday, 18 June from 1pm

Venture on a globe-trotting mission to discover the ways in which the world works all around us, including episodes of:

HOW DID THEY BUILD THAT? – Across the globe, radical architects, ingenious engineers, and skilled builders are creating structures so outrageous, they defy logic and often even gravity. From a Manhattan skyscraper that looks like a Jenga tower to a Singapore glass dome big enough to house a mountain to a high rise in Italy with a built-in forest, we examine the world’s most extraordinary buildings, bridges, and lifts, reveal their design secrets, and discover the incredible stories of their construction.

IMPOSSIBLE REPAIRS – A high-risk/high-reward heli-logging job aboard a chopper that can haul 48,000 tons a mission. A refurbished military vessel that is the heart and soul of a massive open ocean fish farm operation. A freight run that pulls over 50 million tons of cargo a year through Europe. On land, sea, and air, mind-blowing machines are making do-or-die deliveries. Meet the engineers, technicians, and maintenance teams who prep these jobs, complete the repairs, and fix the problems to keep the monster vehicles running.

What the industry says about US

TT Spektra, Sweden

We use both the Global Listings press schedules (in Word) and their XML files. The programme descriptions are rather good and not too long, which is helpful. We use their text verbatim and import it direct into our database.

NBC Universal Global Networks, Central and Eastern Europe

We have worked with Global Listings on the launch of new channels into Central and Eastern Europe and have been very impressed with the standard of service, prompt responses to schedule amendments and proactivity in getting schedule and highlights information in plenty of time, as well as the delivery of our EPG content.
