Dubai Minus its Skyscrapers!
Strip the City will investigate some of Dubai's most famous landmarks, including the Burj Khalifa

Dubai is known for its massive skyscrapers, but a new programme set to air on The Discovery Channel will show the city without its famous landmarks.

Strip the City, to be aired on Discovery Channel HD, will use CGI animation to peel away Dubai’s buildings and road networks in order to show the infrastructure behind the city.

The programme will illustrate how some of Dubai’s main attractions including the Burj Khalifa and The Palm Islands have been built, with engineers giving insights into the city’s complex underground systems.

The series has explored other major cities including London and Rome and the Dubai episode will air at 10.55pm on Discovery Channel HD on 19 May.
