Holland is constantly being threatened by rising sea levels due to climate change. In the past, they have been fighting against the sea with a series of windmills and barriers. Until the 21st Century, the sea is still a threat to the nation but advances in technology and engineering have made it possible for them to build safer and more effective barriers like the Maeslantkering and Oosterscheldekering Barries featured in this documentary.

There are 26 titles in RP Library which include Tokyo’s sky city, subways in America, Iceland tunnels and Dubai ski resort.
