Produced as part of ICE’s 200th anniversary celebrations, ‘Engineering Plymouth’ illustrates the city’s engineering journey through time before focusing on its future and the people tasked with leading its current major engineering projects.
Featuring iconic locations such as Plymouth Breakwater and the Eddystone Lighthouse, ‘Engineering Plymouth’ brings together 14 regional partners and over 30 contributors to take the audience on a breathtaking tour of Plymouth and its evolution into a 21st century city.
The film is narrated by actress, comedian and writer Dawn French and features music by West Devon’s acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician, Seth Lakeman.
Miranda Housden, ICE Regional Director South West, said:
“’Engineering Plymouth’ explores the role of civil engineers in designing, building and creating our city – both in the past and into the future. It aims to highlight that civil engineering is a rewarding and creative career and hopes to encourage the next generation to join the profession.
This truly collaborative production has bought together the community to show both the history, and the future, of this city that we all love.”
