Fascinating program about the Colosseum, the city of Petra, and the Hagia Sophia. Highly recommended.

An exceptional set of three documentaries from the always reliable PBS network. The engineering and cultural histories of these three places are explored at length through the eyes of experts trying to understand various aspects of what went into their creation. Fascinating, particularly for those with an interest in history.
