Monday 23rd February 2009 8pm-8:50pm BBC HD
Super Skyscraper: Taipei 101. Series 1, episode 2.
Richard Hammond discovers the secrets of the world's tallest building, Taipei 101, built on a seismic fault line in a typhoon hotspot. He finds out just what it is that allows the tower to be so tall, and what this cutting-edge engineering has in common with a bird cage, bamboo, boat masts and seat belts. Richard embarks on a journey that will take him from the mines of 17th-century England via the early skyscrapers of Chicago to the top of one of the most advanced buildings in the world.
