Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 21h10
Genre: Reality

Heavy Lifting

Welcome to the heady, cutthroat world of... wait for it... mobile crane operators.

Heavy Lifting follows the intense lives of mobile crane operators as they make their living performing precision lifts.

Day in and day out, these operators hoist massive loads and place them on a dime. lt takes precision, control and single-minded focus.

And each job presents unique dangers and challenges which these operators must deal with on the fly.

Manoeuvering huge mobile cranes within tight spaces means avoiding lethal high-voltage power lines, finding solid, stable ground, dealing with unpredictable weather and quickly calculating the best angle to perform the lift.

Not to mention the varied types of lifts they are hired to perform.

Whether hoisting a swimming pool over a house, lifting a massive train engine on to railway tracks, pulling a giant chain from a roller coaster or moving a single couch onto a high-rise apartment balcony, no two lifts are the same.

Four new working mothers and friends deal with the struggles and nuttiness of returning to work while trying to balance their family and love lives.

Kate, on the other hand, has zero interest in marriage, preferring to attend Anne's wedding with a 'separated man,' much to her mother Eleanor's chagrin.

But the night is young, and chance meetings can change one's life.
