This feature-length special episode explores 5,000 years of history on the move.

  • The ultimate in heavy lifting.
  • Engineers are put to the test relocating everything from 19th century churches to massive factories.
  • From Stonehenge to a Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, here are the stories of historys greatest moves.

Leaving your home or office? Call the movers. But if you're the type who can't leave anything behind, you'll have to call in the MEGA MOVERS. Whether it's a 19th century church or a massive brick office building, there are few things our experts can't relocate. Of course, when it comes time to lift a structure from its foundations and head down the road (at a fraction of a mile an hour), every creak and groan can provide a vital clue, and a mistake of an inch could spell disaster.

From the ancient Egyptian engineers and Roman architects to today's moving miracles, the men, methods, and machines of structural moving have pushed the limits of imagination and technology for over 5,000 years. This 2-hour special investigates amazing feats of mega moving from primitive civilizations through the Industrial Revolution and into the 21st century--including the evolution of technology that allows a 3,000-ton building to be driven down the street by remote control!
