The Bridge is the definitive story of the building of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the vision of those who made it happen, despite their personal conflicts and political intrigues. Pipe Dreams is the epic historical story of the 19th century construction of the longest water pipeline in the world - the Perth to Coolgardie Water Scheme. A Wire Through the Heart brings to life the epic story of constructing Australia's overland telegraph. The two central characters are dramatically recreated, explorer John McDougall Stuart and scientist Charles Todd, and the film documents their extraordinary tales of adventure and engineering struggle -- ABV-TV website.
