The Troll A gas platform, tallest structure ever moved by man, owes its design to a 19th century French gardener, a 16th century German mayor, an American engineer and the dawn of the motor industry. It was built using inspiration from such diverse items as a grain silo, a vacuum air pump and a plantpot. Richard Hammond's Engineering Connections is a show, wherin the presenter, Richard Hammond, learns how engineers and designers use historic inventions and clues from the natural world in ingenous ways to develop new buildings and machines. The show involves Richard Hammond looking at several areas of the modern development and learning - often from the designers of the development itself - from where they got the ideas that they use to bring the development to fruition.
