7.00 p.m. |HINT|Ancient Rome: The Modern Stadium
First, a trip to Wembley, England to examine the world's most
technologically advanced football stadium. When completed the new
Wembley Stadium will seat 90-thousand people, contain over 3-million
cubic feet of concrete, and will be covered by an eleven acre
moveable roof. All quite state of the art, but not exactly new
technology. The ancient Coliseum had many of the same features nearly
two thousand years earlier. So, we're off to Rome to build and test a
Roman crane and demonstrate how the ancient Romans managed to erect
the 16 story stadium in the middle of a crowded city. We'll also see
if the Coliseum could empty its 55-thousand spectators in under 15
minutes, as some historians claim.
