"I rate John Baker as the greatest structural engineer alive today."
"As an engineer, his influence not only on structural design but on education has been tremendous."
Tonight's programme is a portrait of Professor Sir John Baker one of this country's most distinguished engineers (an engineer being, in his own words, a man who can do for 10/- what any fool can do for 11)
It traces his career from his early work on airships in the 1920s, on air-raid shelter design during the last war, to his present-day influence on young engineers in his department at Cambridge.
