EQUINOX: RIDDLE OF THE LEANING TOWER
Documentary series. Programme following Professor John Burland, the only Englishman on a scientific committee appointed by the Italian government to save the leaning tower of Pisa from collapse. Burland, a soil specialist, proposes drilling below the foundations on the north side of the Tower and sucking out soil, causing localised subsidence to make the Tower lean back away from danger. But the Committee has reservations about his plans.
