It’s back! Richard Hammond’s Engineering Connections returns for a second series and this time it is bigger, bolder and braver than ever with six brand new and exclusive episodes.
The intrepid Richard climbs to the top of Sydney Opera House, stands on the summit of the world’s tallest road bridge, closes the roof on Wembley Stadium – and reveals the secrets behind these and other modern day superstructures.
Want to learn how Wembley’s arch holds up the roof thanks to a 19th century glider, what connects the Millau Bridge with Teflon, and how a brass band helped to shape Hong Kong International Airport? Join Richard Hammond on his global quest to uncover the incredible ideas and unconventional technologies that lie beneath some of the world’s most iconic structures.
S02E01: Wembley Stadium
Richard kicks off proceedings at Wembley Stadium, the high-tech home of English football. No one can deny the magnificence of
Wembley, but how is its towering arch inspired by a medieval crossbow and how did a simple rock climbers’ knot help engineers raise it into
place? Richard tracks down the answers – and finds out how experts preserved the famous ‘Wembley Roar’.
S02E02: Sydney Opera House
Towering over Sydney Harbour, the famous Opera House is one of the most recognisable and iconic buildings in the world. Richard heads
Down Under, takes a stroll along the incredible structure’s roof, learns how its unique “sails” work on the same principles as a simple child’s
collapsible toy, and discovers a bizarre engineering connection with a First World War gas mask.
S02E03: HMS Illustrious
Presenter Richard Hammond looks at engineering achievements and how they were brought about by technological innovation. He climbs
aboard the mighty aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious, which, at 209 metres long, is a floating airport, a city, battleship and strike carrier, all in one.
S02E04: Guggenheim Bilbao
Presenter Richard Hammond looks at engineering achievements and how they were brought about by technological innovation. Discover
how a trundle wheel, Russian submarines and a Hawaiian volcano helped architect Frank Gehry design one of the world's most iconic buildings.
S02E05: Millau Bridge
Richard uncovers why an ancient Celtic boat-building technique was crucial to the development of the tallest road bridge in the world.
S02E06: Hong Kong Airport
Richard Hammond reveals how a World War II bomber and a brass band helped create one of the world's biggest and busiest airports.
