“I love making engineering shows because I’m fascinated by the science and people behind some truly amazing feats,” said Hammond. “Whether it’s a container ship a quarter of a mile long or the longest rail tunnel in the world 2km under the Alps, or a massive hydroelectric dam, or an oil platform – once you get to a giant scale, how does that change how it works? And what is it like to live and work with?”
