As a bit of a geek at heart, and a collector of trivia, I often enjoy watching doco's as casual viewing. You'd be surprised how interesting learning the 'inside story' of the everyday world can be. So it was with great feeling of "Awww HELL!", when I accidentally caught the tail-end of the episode on The Panama Canal on TV recently, that I realised I had been missing a really good series.

Imagine my joy to discover that, even before the series finishes on TV, I could watch all 7 episodes, and on DVD too! Many thanks to Roadshow for their wonderfully-timed courier parcel. So, on went the TV, into the PS2 went the discs (2 disc set), and down I sat to watch the history of some of humanity's greatest engineering achievements.

Wonderfully reproduced, with the seamless grace of CGI complimenting the wonderful acting, I was entranced as I watched the Bell Rock Lighthouse being built, the Panama Canal being dug, washed away, and dug again, and the trials and tribulations of the Brooklyn Bridge and it's sub-standard rust-infested wire cables, etc. (Makes you wonder why people still drive on it, knowing it's construction history).

Overall, this has to be a stunning addition to any serious "What Went On" buff, like me. It sits in proud place next to my collection on Great Minds of History.
