David Dimbleby continues his voyage around Britain, sailing his yacht Rocket along coastal regions of the South East, the first point of attack for enemy forces and therefore essential to the nation's defence throughout history. Along the way, he takes a tour of HMS Victory, Nelson's flagship vessel from the Battle of Trafalgar, lovingly preserved in dry dock in Portsmouth. He also meets a carpenter who still makes wooden figureheads, discovers how a chamber pot acted as propaganda in the battle against Napoleon and reveals the way abstract art was used to deceive German submarine pilots.

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.
