Episode 3

The UK's largest mobile crane company is looking to the future. Its teams of drivers, riggers and slingers are working on the front line of new energy projects. However the installation of a wind turbine in Cornwall is brought to a halt by too much wind.

In London, the crane drivers are given cycle awareness training to help cut the risk of their HGVs to vulnerable road users. The team also face a delicate job as they are tasked with lifting the centuries-old HMS Victory in Portsmouth.

Meanwhile, two of the company's most trusted employees are looking for a change. Driver Andy Surridge gives up working 6 days a week on a crane floating in the Firth of Forth estuary so that he can see more of his wife. Paul Gilpin, the company's oldest employee, is retiring - but not before he has one last go in a crane.
