Documentary tracing the story of how humans have transformed our world in a generation. Dallas Campbell travels the globe, visiting the world’s largest and most ambitious engineering projects, exploring the power of human ingenuity and the making of the modern world.

Dallas explores how we have been redesigning the planet as we build ever more astonishing places to live. In Dubai, he climbs to the very top of the world’s tallest building - over half a mile above the desert sand - to help clean the highest windows in the world; and he explores how desert wastelands have been transformed into bristling forests of skyscrapers as we’ve conquered the sky and turned it into a place we can call home.

Dallas explores how we can travel further and faster than ever before - and how our desire to shrink the world is inspiring some of the most ambitious engineering projects on the planet. He takes a treacherous walk along what will be one of the longest suspension bridges in the world and reveals how to move an object the size of Buckingham Palace half way around the globe. He examines how we have created a permanent home beyond the atmosphere in space. Here on earth, he takes part in a modern day love affair - a drive-through wedding.

Dallas examines what it takes to keep seven billion humans alive with food, energy and water. 40% of the Earth’s surface is now devoted to growing food. To appreciate how we have transformed vast swathes of land to produce food, Dallas paraglides over the south coast of Spain, where what was once an arid landscape is now home to the world’s largest greenhouse array. He also rides with cowboys on Brazil’s largest cattle ranch, to help herd over 125,000 cattle. He visits Lake Mead, the biggest man-made lake in the USA, to see how it has helped us transform harsh desert into the bright lights of Las Vegas. He also joins the team building a 750 mile long artificial river to transport water from south to north China.
