Building Wonders

HISTORY CHANNEL – Sunday 6 March, 7.30pm

Archaeologist Julian Richards travels through the west of England to discover how some of Great Britain’s most treasured structures were built. Using impressive CGI techniques, the real locations and the builders’ plans, he takes us inside the minds of original architects, designers and builders to explore the detail of six great iconic endeavours, helping us to understand the motives and inspiration that went into their building. From the precision of Stonehenge; the shafts of the Box Tunnel and the sleek, blue print lines of Concorde he discovers that those who built these vast constructs all shared a common goal: a driving vision to create something with a lasting impression.
