Richard Hammond's Engineering Connections
It’s back! Richard Hammond’s Engineering Connections returns for a second series and this time it is bigger, bolder and braver than ever with six brand new and exclusive episodes.
The intrepid Richard climbs to the top of Sydney Opera House, stands on the summit of the world’s tallest road bridge, closes the roof on Wembley Stadium – and reveals the secrets behind these and other modern day superstructures.
Want to learn how Wembley’s arch holds up the roof thanks to a 19th century glider, what connects the Millau Bridge with Teflon, and how a brass band helped to shape Hong Kong International Airport? Join Richard Hammond on his global quest to uncover the incredible ideas and unconventional technologies that lie beneath some of the world’s most iconic structures.

Wembley Stadium. Series 2, episode 1.
Richard kicks off proceedings at Wembley Stadium, the high-tech home of English football. No one can deny the magnificence of Wembley, but how is its towering arch inspired by a medieval crossbow and how did a simple rock climbers’ knot help engineers raise it into place? Richard tracks down the answers – and finds out how experts preserved the famous ‘Wembley Roar’.
