It's megastructure time on NGC

MUMBAI: The National Geographic Channel (NGC) will usher in 2005 with a new show with an architectural bent. Megastructures airs Monday to Friday at 9 pm from 10 January.

NGC senior VP content and communication Dilshad Master said, "From the world's tallest hotel in Dubai to the longest double-deck suspension bridge in Hong Kong, each night viewers are transported around the globe to witness the construction of these mammoth structures."

The show will reveal the drama, personal stories and the technological innovation behind some of the world's most impressive structures. It looks at how architects constructed a building that has no straight lines. Another episode scrutinises a floating restaurant seemingly suspended 200 meters above the Arabian Gulf. State-of-the-art computer technology, live tests, and historic footage illustrate some the challenges and complexities of constructing these engineering marvels.

With the recent earthquake and Tsunami wreaking havoc across Asia the viewers interest level in natural disasters has gone up. NGC will air Storm Stories every weekday at 6:30 pm from 3 January.

The series will showcase catastrophic hurricanes, tornadoes, surging river rapids, blizzards, and more. In first-person detail the show looks at what can happen when ordinary people are caught in extraordinary weather events and how, sometimes miraculously, they manage to cheat death and retreat to safety.

From suffocating snow, twisters and towering waves to floodwaters, blistering infernos and howling winds, Storm Stories captures the power of Mother Nature's most perilous and destructive conditions-and the strength of the human spirit to overcome those perils.
