Summary This week the team ventures out to brand new territory, the astonishing man-made shoreline of the Netherlands. Nick explores how ingenious Dutch engineers created massive coastal defences like no others on earth following a flood in 1953 which killed thousands of people. Newcomer Tessa is on the trail of the extraordinary trade in tulip bulbs that's said to have nearly bankrupted the Dutch nation nearly 400 years ago. Meanwhile, Mark reveals the skills that have made the Dutch the grand masters at creating new living space from the sea. (From the UK) (Documentary Series) PG CC
