This series explores the most extraordinary and sometimes deadly engineering disasters around. Why did a brand-new bridge suddenly and tragically collapse? How did drilling for oil trigger the largest whirlpool the US has ever seen? And which Paris landmark hid a deadly design flaw? From a skyscraper that threatened to rain lethal chunks of marble over downtown Chicago to a gas pipeline that shook southern Spain, we uncover the engineering that created the chaos.
With access to design teams, eye-witnesses and a panel of experts, we analyse what went wrong, investigate why errors went undiscovered and reveal how engineers are working to prevent future disasters.
