Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this educational, documentary-style series takes a close look at current and future large-scale engineering projects. The show goes into great detail about each project, providing an informative -- if sometimes boring, depending on your level of interest -- glimpse into the world of engineering and construction. The narrator attempts to build tension and create drama by emphasizing costs, weight, temperatures, and even the risks to human life that an engineering mistake could have. But there's really nothing to raise eyebrows here; if your kids like this kind of thing, they'll learn a lot.
Host mentions possible dangers (explosions, heat, pressure, etc.), though that's not a huge element of the show.
Promotes understanding of engineering and construction and an awareness of the world around us.
Some construction vehicles bear company or manufacturer names, like Volvo (in Sweden).
