Glasgow

Explosives experts Dr. Braden Lusk and Dr. Paul Worsey show us how demolition blasters bring down urban buildings with unprecedented accuracy. First, Braden travels to Glasgow, Scotland, where blasters are using a computerized detonation system to blast a pair of high-rise towers. Not only are the two buildings extremely tall, but they are right across the street from other, vital buildings that the city does not want damaged. At the test lab, Paul and Braden examine how blaster Jim Redyke is taking down an old hotel in downtown Birmingham, Alabama with a mix of explosives. When a building is in the middle of a busy downtown area, blasters have to be precise to avoid disaster.

Bermuda

Every now and then, demolition crews face a structure that's so hazardous blasting it down is the only safe option. Explosives experts Dr. Braden Lusk and Dr. Paul Worsey take us behind the scenes at the blasts of two structures that just can't be brought down with a wrecking ball. Braden goes to Bermuda, where blasters attempt to implode a huge former beach resort. Built to withstand hurricanes, this massive concrete building is hiding a dangerous demolition hazard within its walls. Then Paul shows us a towering industrial chimney in the Netherlands that requires the special skills of a blast crew to bring it down to the ground safely. When blasters go up against high-risk structures, explosive precision is critical, because failure can mean damaging nearby businesses and homes.
