Examines some of the most notorious engineering failures of recent years
and asks what went wrong and what we learned from them. We take viewers to

lake to be sucked into an underground salt mine; review the 1972 Buffalo
Creek dam disaster; revisit the Exxon Valdez oil spill; see how radio and
TV antenna towers collapse with alarming regularity; and look at the
