Summary
Man walks, drives and rides on it. He lands his aircraft on it. He uses it to cross rivers or go through mountains, he builds his playgrounds, offices, homes and factories ... his schools, universities, churches and almost everything he needs - right down to swimming pools and garden gnomes. It is concrete, and this special looks at the way it created our modern cities and how we work and live in them. This film covers the history of concrete from its discovery, its disappearance for 15 centuries and its re-emergence to become the most effective of all building materials. It highlights architectural works by Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier and the errant Spanish genius Antonio Gaudi
