ICE commissions Y2K film showcase

A FILM SHOWCASING major civil engineering projects at the turn of the millennium has been commissioned by the ICE.

The 15-minute film features young engineers talking about their work on projects such as the Millennium Dome, Millennium Wheel, Forth and Clyde Canal, Jubilee Line Extension and Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

It is hoped that the film, which will be distributed to local associations and branches next month, will be used to sell the profession to school leavers.

The £20,000 film is also based on the themes of Professor George Fleming's forthcoming presidential address - Civil Engineering and Human Potential.

The film is being made by production company Ideal World, which last year produced a series about historic structures for the Discovery Channel (NCE 3 September 1998).
