Episode Summary

EDIT
TT Special 52 Isle of Dogs, London
AIRED:

Brunel's last launch.

Nowadays, London's East End is synonymous with the 2012 Olympic Games. Cutting-edge engineering and design have transformed the Olympic Park. But 150 years ago, the world was watching for a very different reason, although the spectacle on display was as high-tech as anything on offer today.

The East End was once home to the most advanced shipbuilding industry - and best workers and shipyards - in the world.

A century and a half ago, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Britain's most famous engineer, was about to launch a ship five times bigger than any that had ever been built before, the most revolutionary vessel the world had ever seen: the SS Great Eastern.
