impossible engineering

Yesterday has announced a six-part series exploring the engineering behind megastructures.

'Impossible Engineering' will look at what goes into making tall buildings, ships and cutting-edge trains.

The show is made by TwoFour and will air in May. It will incorporate a mix of 3D graphics, archive and specially commissioned footage.

While it will focus on modern-day marvels, it will also profile the top engineers of the past who paved the way for today's landscape.

Adrian Wills, general manager for Yesterday, said the show heralded a broader remit for the channel.

"'Impossible Engineering' is one of Yesterday's flagship shows for 2015, paving the way for the channel's expansion into broader factual content," he said in a statement. "We're really proud to be able to showcase such a high quality and thoroughly fascinating series – one full of well-known structures, and intriguing insights that build on viewers' existing knowledge."

Neil Edwards, executive producer at TwoFour, added: "We're delighted that 'Impossible Engineering' will be making its debut on Yesterday. The show's blend of mind-blowing modern engineering and thrilling historical innovations couldn't have found a more perfect home."
