This film looks at the major bridges over the River Forth in Scotland. Presenter Tess stands between the imposing structures of the Forth Rail Bridge, which is over 150 years old, and the younger Forth Road Bridge opened in 1964. Before these bridges existed, people had to travel by ferry in order to cross the river.

Children could make their own models of the bridges over the River Forth. Children could discuss bridges that they have been over and what the advantages are of having bridges across rivers.
