Episode Summary

Modern Marvel's Tunnels discusses though tunnels are a dangerous architectural project, they are part of our society. Tunnels were first created during Babylonian times by Brunel and Greathead, who created a shield that allowed them to travel under the Thames River. More recently, Clifford Holland overcame the odds and carved his 8,463 foot path under the Hudson River.

The workers constructing New York's new water tunnel are facing the same dangers and impending death.moreless
