The Finnish construction of cruise liner Freedom of the Seas, which was launched in 2006 and, at 18 storeys in height and a quarter of a mile in length, is the largest in the world. As cameras show the many features such as the surf park and ice rink, experts investigate whether at 160,000 tonnes this is the maximum size ocean-going technology will reach before having too great a mass to float

At a time when most ships were built to traditional designs in wood, and powered by sail, Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s colossal ship, the Great Eastern, was almost 700 feet long and built of iron. His vision was that it should carry 4,000 passengers, in magnificent style, as far as the Antipodes - without needing to refuel.

George Carey's film shows how the Russian space programme was kick-started by a mystic who taught that science would make us immortal, and carried forward by a scientist who believed that we should evolve into super-humans who could leave our overcrowded planet to colonise the universe. Stranger still, Carey shows how those ideas have survived Communism and adapted themselves to the science of the modern world.
