In the blinking of an eye man has climbed off his horse and flown to the moon. Transport has developed at an alarming rate, but it didn't happen by accident. Pioneers struggled to push forward the limits of technology and fought to overcome the endless barriers that lay before them. Incredible achievements - which have since been taken for granted - were often accomplished with extreme difficulties and against strong opposition. Century in Motion investigates the technologies and the motivation, passions and perserverance of the amazing people who achieve the impossible. Each programme explores a different aspect of transport and its effect on mankind.
