Sunday, February 13th, 2022

Smithsonian – Stunt – Saturday, 19 February from 4pm

Venture on a globe-trotting mission to discover the ways in which the world works all around us, featuring 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.

The Global Listings press schedules are very good. Especially as we have very little space in the TV Guide sections, these are still very useful to us. In addition, the Global Listings TV highlights documents and press reports are also a great way for us to make choices of what TV programmes to feature.
