Structural Arches - A Documentary -Worth a Look
 
There is a documentary on SBS One tonight that looks at the cathedrals, particularly Gothic. The arch construction and what is all about. The stress lines and how the masons managed them.

Very interesting.

It will probably be available on SBS On Demand | TV and Online Video - What is SBS On Demand? tomorrow.

Worth a look.
