Monster Ships

Yesterday

Season 1 - 8 x 60 mins

 We board the world’s biggest ships as they take on the toughest jobs on the roughest oceans. From massive Lakers bulk carriers, ascending the epic locks of the Niagara Escarpment with their gigantic loads of grain and iron ore to the magnificent Pacific Orca, a heavy-lift jack-up vessel; a self-elevating, self-propelled immense ship, built to install off-shore wind turbines.

 

 

These monsters face everything the oceans can throw at them but how does something so massive actually work? In this series we get to grips with the specialist engineering and technological features that enable these leviathans of the seas to get the job done. And we meet the hard-working crews that in harsh and challenging environments accomplish what sometimes seems like the impossible.
