Title: American Experience: Golden Gate Bridge
Url: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/goldengate/
Publisher: Public Broadcasting Service (U.S.)

Description: Completed in May 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge is considered one of the world's greatest engineering feats, and an iconic structure on the order of the Taj Mahal, the Houses of Parliament, and the Sears Tower. Paying homage to the story of its construction and historical context is this companion site designed to complement the American Experience documentary on this magnificent structure. On the site, visitors can read a full transcript of the documentary, read a synopsis of the film, and peruse a list of further reading materials. As with many American Experience websites, the special features section is something to behold, as it contains a fun online poll dealing with the world's top suspension bridges, an interactive feature that lets users learn how engineers use math to design bridges, and a question and answer section with a noted historian on the nature of the big engineering projects that dotted the American landscape in the 1930s.
