Product description

How Britain Worked 

Guy Martin’s a huge fan of engineering, and British engineering in particular. In this series he rolls up his sleeves and gets to work exploring the legacy of the ever-innovative Victorians. Each episode sees him take on a new challenge in different areas of work: rebuilding a pioneering steam engine, restoring a Brixham trawler, maintaining the world’s oldest operational water turbine at a Yorkshire sawmill, making glass for the Birmingham Botanical Gardens glasshouse, fixing ironwork on Llandudno pier and overhauling and driving a massive steam locomotive on the Severn Valley Railway. Along the way Guy meets loads of fascinating characters, learns new skills and uncovers the social history of the Industrial Revolution.

The Boat that Guy Built

The original Guy Martin TV series saw the Lincolnshire legend team up with his old mate Mave to build and kit out a narrow boat.  But they didn’t do it the easy way - they used ‘Reckless’ as a way to discover old working methods that gave the Industrial Revolution its force: they smelted iron, wove silk, made their own baked beans and even visited Thomas Crapper & Co in search of the perfect loo!
