    http://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365339966/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false

    Kevin arrives to find Tom solving a major problem with the house - the exterior walls are bowing out from the weight of the roof over 160 years. In the basement, Richard shows Kevin the result of two weeks of hand digging and a week of rough plumbing: the floor is down several inches, the sewer line tucked in the floor, and the radiant heat/insulation system going in. On the third floor, Norm shows Kevin how the roof has been under-structured since it was originally built. Tom joins to get the first of two massive LVLs tucked into the pockets in the brick sidewalls and fastened in place.

    Clean: Dirty water has killed more humans than all the wars of history combined, but in the last 150 years, a series of radical ideas, extraordinary innovations and unsung heroes have changed our world. Johnson plunges into a sewer to understand what made a maverick engineer decide to lift the city of Chicago with screw jacks in order to build America's first sewer system. He talks about John Leal, who deliberately "poisoned" the water supply of 200,000 people when, without authorization, he added chlorine, considered lethal in 1908, into Jersey City's water and made it safe to drink.

    The world today is obsessed by time. Johnson boards a submarine to discover what a lack of natural light means for a sailor's working day and visits Heathrow, the world's busiest airport, to try to get timings right at air traffic control. The story of getting a grip on time is full of curious garage tinkerers. One of them, railway clerk William F. Allen, was so exasperated by the chaos caused by the 8,000 local times zones in the U.S. that he fought tirelessly to standardize time into four zones.
