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.

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.

The bigger the drought, the bigger the flood. That certainly held true over the past year for the eastern half of Australia, with flooding rains ending the worst drought in history. The signs that the weather was turning began in 2009, when a deluge in the tropical north set the great desert rivers flowing through Central Australia. For the first time in years, the water flowed all the way to Lake Eyre, the huge salt pan in the dead heart of the continent. ABC TV reporter Paul Lockyer covered the drought in 2009, and now returns to Lake Eyre 12 months later to investigate the floods sweeping across much of south west Queensland.
