Summary An examination of the six technological breakthroughs that have allowed the world's largest spanning dome - the Oita Stadium in Japan - to be built. The Oita's colossal roof spans a mighty 274 metres. A steel, Teflon and titanium structure over 270 metres across, and 60 metres high, the Oita Stadium roof covers a sports stadium big enough to seat 43 thousand spectators. At the flick of a switch its seats retract to reveal a running track and its roof opens and closes like a giant eye. (From the UK) (Documentary Series) G CC
