The Screen Guide

Massive, majestic, breathtaking - the Sydney Harbour Bridge was the greatest engineering challenge of its day anywhere on earth. Completed during the Great Depression, it is the legacy of a fateful partnership between two very different men - a brilliant engineer and a maverick politician - who shared a relentless ambition to create 'the people's bridge'. Celebrating the 75th anniversary of one of Australia's most loved icons, this is the epic and definitive story behind the building of the bridge and the vision of those who made it happen, despite personal conflict and political intrigue.
