Time Scanners on the National Geographic Channel

Time Scanners, presented by Dallas Campbell, unlocks the secrets of the world’s most iconic engineering feats using cutting-edge, 3D laser scanning technology. A team of scientists and historians led by Steve Burrows (engineer for the Beijing Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium), uses the extraordinary scans  to create 3D digital models of the Roman Coliseum, the Egyptian Pyramids, the Incas’ Machu Picchu, St Paul’s in London, Petra and Jerusalem with pin-point accuracy.

Looks like a fascinating BBC TV series. Thanks to Michael Raphael at Direct Dimensions for the tip.
