This program follows more than 10,000 engineers and construction workers as they fight to stop London's streets caving in or snarling up with traffic. They race to complete the brand new railway directly underneath the city, Crossrail, London's new underground, in time for the first trains to start running. Costing £15 billion, it's the biggest engineering project in Europe. Linda Miller is an engineer who is more at home constructing space launch complexes at Cape Canaveral. She must build what will become Britain's busiest station - Farringdon - an underground structure longer than the Shard skyscraper is tall.

But this ruin was at the heart of a revolution that saved our grandparents' generation and changed society forever. It tells the story of the water we drink, and not that long ago drinking British water could literally kill you.

Engineers are constructing and fitting out a new station at Paddington, erecting a 230m-long great glass canopy to soar above the structure, and plugging directly into Brunel's original grade one-listed station - a nerve wracking feat. At Tottenham Court Road, workers are building underground platforms and concourses the size of an aircraft carrier in the heart of the world's busiest shopping district. The team must carefully remove enormous props that hold apart the station walls, as convoys of concrete trucks drive down Oxford Street where half a million shoppers and tourists visit, every day. In Derby, a father and son team race to construct 66 trains to ferry passengers across the 50km of Crossrail line.

Just under 200 years ago scientists discovered something profound; that electricity is connected to another of nature's most fundamental forces - magnetism. Harnessing the link between magnetism and electricity would completely transform the world, allowing us to generate a seemingly limitless amount of electric power, power we could utilise to drive machines, communicate across continents and light our homes.
