Abandoned Engineering (2021): S08E12 – Before the Crown


Documentary series focusing on ruined engineering projects that have been put to alternative use, including the site of the Chernobyl disaster, disused railway bridges and ship graveyards.


Abandoned Engineering travels to Chile, the Maltese capital Valleta, Havana and Germany, to reveal: honeymoon home of a young princess that offered her a glimpse of freedom; grand monuments designed by the most notorious dictator of the twentieth century; a sprawling industrial complex; the site of a ruthless disappearance; and the artistic dream of a revolutionary now in ruins.
