From the ancient Greek and Roman Temples to the skyscrapers of today, and from the crucial cathedrals and industrial age marvels in-between, came the lessons learned, forgotten and rediscovered regarding the principles by which buildings could be made high and strong as well as beautiful. This scholarly based and easily understood documentary shows how over the ages the master builders of their day solved these problems, sometimes more successfully than those of later days, and how sometimes these lesson have been forgotten and only rediscovered at some cost. One is left with a sense of marvel and wonder while having learned the lesson of applying sound proven principles over enthusiastic negligence (Color, 1988, 56 Minutes).
