The infrastructure of New York is examined in the Season 2 premiere.
Chicago's infrastructure is examined.
Venice is sinking while sea levels are rising, a recipe for disaster. Using CGI animation to strip it of its steel and concrete, layer by layer, we explore the infrastructure that keeps Venice afloat through frequent floods and erosive salt water.
Strip The City uses stunning CGI animation to strip the world’s most extreme mega-quake city – Tokyo - naked of its steel, concrete, ocean and rock – layer by layer – to explore the secret technology and infrastructure that keeps it standing in a mega quake.
New Orleans is standing on the edge of disaster. Built along the banks of the mighty Mississippi this vibrant city of culture and jazz is completely surrounded by water. Losing land fast to the Gulf of Mexico, sitting on unstable silty mud, it is also directly in the firing line of hurricanes every year.
The film strips away Paris’s most famous icons to reveal their secret inner workings and the ingenious technology that allowed engineers to build the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and Sacre Couer. We peel back the boulevards to reveal the threat that lies just 60 feet below ground. We descend into the city’s caverns to meet the engineers and geologists working to prop up the streets above and join the team constructing a brand new metro line in the city’s already crowded underground world.
Constantly under threat from earthquakes, landslides and floods how did this ancient city survive for over 400 years?
Strip The City uses stunning CGI animation to strip the world’s most extreme earthquake city – Los Angeles - naked of its steel, concrete, ocean and rock – layer by layer – to explore the secret technology and infrastructure that keeps it standing in a killer quake.

How does the city’s buildings and infrastructure survive the onslaught of a destructive earthquake? This film looks beneath the city’s skin to discover the engineering wonders and geological forces that make it possible. Stunning CGI animation peels back the glass off its skyscrapers and steel off its bridges to reveal their inner workings.
The city’s leading surveyors and geologists reveal the secrets that keep LA’s skyscrapers standing, protect its roads and aqueducts and prepare its residents for ‘the Big One’. The film explores the geology that shaped the city’s past and challenges its future, from the oil reserves that attracted the first settlers to the fault line where a massive earthquake is long overdue.
