History has commissioned UK indie Title Role Productions Ltd to produce a one-hour documentary special, How Britain Bridges the World. Aiming for transmission in January 2011, the doc looks at how pioneers of bridge building, British engineers and architects, have influence across the globe. It will include HD footage of bridges across the UK and Europe, including the Skye Bridge in Scotland, Millennium Bridge in Gateshead, the Milau Viaduct in France and the Millennium Bridge in London and also includes contributors like architects and engineers Lord Norman Foster, Keith Brownlie and Michel Virlogeux. Distributor Electric Sky has invested deficit funds in the project and acquired worldwide distribution rights.
