They Meant Well – Government Project Disasters (also available as a free pdf), a look at when procurement goes horribly wrong. Includes the R101 Airship, the Channel Tunnel, the Millennium Dome and Experience (of which remarkably little survives online), Concorde, nuclear power and the bizarre Tanganyika groundnut scheme, a post-war ‘idea to cultivate groundnuts in the British protectorate of Tanganyika’. Related, a list of white elephant projects.
