The 19th Century brought men who went out into the landscape and shaped it to their own design using iron, steam and fire. These are the men who were to mould the modern world...
In just a few short decades, two remarkable men literally changed the world forever. In the world of engineering, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Robert Stephenson were the fiercest of rivals, but in private they were the greatest of friends. Brunel, son of one of the world's respected engineers, liked to build things that his rivals considered impossible. Stephenson, the son of a rough and ready self-made man, was more conservative and cautious. But both were supremely dedicated to their craft - and both would work themselves to death building the supreme technical achievements of their age.
Using unique computer-generated reconstructions, original journal entries and commentary from engineers and historians, MEN OF IRON tells the fascinating stories of Brunel and Stephenson and their greatest achievements.
From Stephenson's Rocket, railways and the Menai Box Girder Bridge to Brunel's Great Western Railway, Tarmar Bridge and line of revolutionary steamships, this is the story of the most breathtaking technological feats of the Industrial Age.
