At 343 metres, the Millau Viaduct over the Tarn gorge in southern France is the world's tallest bridge and considered by many to be the world's most beautiful. Engineer Rob Bell meets the design team, including architect Norman Foster and structural engineer Dr Michel Virlogeux, and learns about the innovative and ancient techniques used to build it. London's Millennium Bridge, Foster's pedestrian-only thoroughfare, is also featured, including what caused its infamous initial wobble and how it was rectified.
