Tunnels under the Thames

This episode follows engineers building London's brand new underground railway, Crossrail, as they take on a great British obsession - building train tunnels under water.

Linda Miller, an engineer more at home building space launch complexes at Cape Canaveral, battles to rebuild a Victorian tunnel under the Royal Docks in London's East End. Meanwhile a British tunnelling dynasty - the Bermingham family - follow in the footsteps of the original father-son team of Marc and Isambard Kingdom Brunel to build a brand new tunnel under the River Thames.
