For those in the UK, BBC2 is currently showing the second (I believe) series of Richard Hammond's Engineering Connections. (You can use catch-up TV if you have such, or try youboob.) It's a really entertaining show, and educational too, I really like it. Hammond chooses exceptional engineering feats from around the world, and show in what manners they are exceptional and show connections and demonstrations of the inventions which made it possible.
It may be a slightly Guilty Pleasure, because it's made a real Guy's Show with lots of things being blown up or destroyed in the name of demonstration, but hey, I can live with that. :-)
