World's Greatest Bridges

Brooklyn Bridge
Season 1 Episode 4 SBS January 17, 2018

Engineer Rob Bell recounts the story of the Brooklyn Bridge in a classic New York tale featuring big money, corruption, ambition and tragedy. Over a mile in length, the bridge connects the New York boroughs of Brooklyn and Manhattan, spanning the East River. A feat of pioneering 19th-century technology, it took 14 years to build, but its construction was dogged by bad luck from the start; John Roebling, the man responsible for its pioneering design, died in an accident before the build even began. It finally opened in 1883.
