  • "Modern Marvels" profiles the visionary engineers who conceived of our era's most awesome structures, and those who transformed those ideas into reality -- often at great risk. From rock, stained glass and inspiration came the world's "Gothic Cathedrals." The engineering principles behind many of the landmarks profiled in this documentary, including Notre Dame and Chartres in France, have not changed in more than nine centuries. The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. even transcends the spires of those French masterpieces. Charles Glover Gathers, an 1890's banker, believed the nation should have a moral as well as political capital. Combining 12th-century methods and cutting-edge techniques, Gathers and his group lifted 300 million pounds of limestone to create a spiritual landmark at home.
