Now in its fourth series, Abandoned Engineering once again visits some long-forgotten structures.

This opening episode looks at various ghost towns across the globe: Villa Epecuen, a city in Argentina that was destroyed by floods; Centralia, a town seemingly erased from American history; Craco, an Italian mountain town abandoned due to landslides; Kolmanskop, a town in Namibia swallowed up by sand; and perhaps most famously Pripyat – the city that housed the residents who worked at Chernobyl.

Abandoned Engineering is on Yesterday at 20.00.
