National Geographic channel kicks off 20-part series on engineering marvels

National Geographic channel has launched a 20-part series, Megastructures, featuring miracles of modern engineering. Starting January 10, the one-hour programme is on air every weeknight at 9 pm. The series reveals the drama, personal stories and the technological innovation behind some of the world’s most impressive structures.

The landmark structures featured will be Sera Towers in Chicago, Burj-Al-Arab in Dubai and the Transrapid magnetic levitation train, among others. Commenting on the new series, Dilshad Master, Senior VP, Content and Communications, National Geographic Channel, said, “With this series National Geographic Channel aims to satisfy the curiosity with which we view these wonders of modern engineering. The episodes uniquely highlight the story each structure has to tell and each story answers questions that have overwhelmed our minds about them.”

The other attractions on the show are, Ursa, the $1.4-billion skyscraper at sea, to Hong Kong’s Tsing Ma Bridge, the longest double-deck suspension bridge with a dual road and rail system. State-of-the-art computer technology, live tests and historic footage that illustrate the constructions, will also be aired.

Episodes like ‘Oasis’, will show Burj-Al-Arab Hotel, the world’s only seven star hotel with a restaurant that dangles in mid-air 200 meters above the ocean. The other episodes, like ‘Glass’, will show mega glass structures around the world. Other themes are ‘Waterparks’, ‘Sears Tower’, ‘Wind’ and ‘Trains’.
