Film fires up civils profile

Overseas brief

An ICE commissioned video showcasing major civil engineering projects at the turn of the millennium has been showing in schools throughout the UK.

The 15 minute video features young engineers talking about their work on projects such as London's Millennium Dome, Millennium Wheel, the Jubilee Line Extension, Scotland's Forth and Clyde Canal and Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. It has been distributed to ICE branches, and is being used to sell the profession to school leavers.

The video is also based on the themes of Professor George Fleming's recent presidential address - Civil engineering and human potential.

It has been made by production company Ideal World, which last year produced a series about historic structures for the Discovery Channel.
