Brooklyn Bridge: An Engineering Masterpiece on SBS – With rarely seen archival images, spectacular re-shoots, illuminating original sounds and exclusively animated scenes, the documentary tells the story behind the Brooklyn Bridge.
The iconic bridge’s creation is deeply intertwined with the history of the German engineering family Roebling – and the dramatic story of their immigration from Germany to America.
This documentary captures the success story of the Roebling family, whose grand vision is to thank for the bridge now spanning the East River: a gigantic challenge and an enormous engineering feat.
