Thank you, I really enjoyed this educational documentary. It was also enlightening to my teen son who was amazed and curious of the engineering of the ship we will be on next week, her sister ship the Liberty. A keeper!!!

Thanks again!

I saw this when it was originally broadcast on TLC or the Discovery channel. You might be able to search, it is a series called "Big, Bigger, Biggest". Still nice to see.

Thanks for posting this! I started watching it but have found it to be so good that I decided to stop watching and save it to watch with my DH and kids. I think they will enjoy it as much as I am.
