Featuring rare interviews with Jorn Utzon, this program tells the dramatic story of Australia's signature structure: the Sydney Opera House. Part architectural case study and part tribute to the late architect, The Edge of the Possible documents in detail how this international landmark came to be-from its exhilarating inception, to the bitter political controversy that forced Utzon from the project, to its eventual completion. Interviews with four of Utzon's colleagues, shown for the first time, are included, as well as a silent film made by Mogens Prip-Buus, Utzon's chief assistant, showing construction at the site and the protests that took place there when Utzon resigned.
