Chris Barrie (Red Dwarf) returns to seek out more great British machines that have changed people s lives and help shaped Britain as we know it today. 1910's Triumph and Tragedy Chris demonstrates the equipment that saved 700 lives on Titanic. He investigates the machines that broke the deadly stalemate of trench warfare and he pays tribute to the Vickers Vimy, a war plane that achieved one of the greatest landmarks in aviation history, flying non-stop across the Atlantic. 1920's The Engine Roaring Twenties Chris takes on the high speed banking at the world s first purpose built racing circuit in a 1920's Bentley, races on a 1925 Brough Superior motorcycle and takes to the air in a De Havilland Moth, which helped pioneer the commercial air routes we still use today. 1940's War: The Mother of Invention Chris fights fires in the Blitz with the vehicles of the Auxiliary Fire Service, commands High Speed Launch 102 the nation s first high speed rescue boat and charges through the English countryside at 60mph in the groundbreaking Daimler Dingo...in both forward and reverse! Trains - In just ten years transportation evolved from foot and horse to the first passenger railway, forever changing British society. Chris follows this breakthrough, taking a spin on the Trevithick Puffing Devil - the world's first high-pressure steam engine and climbs on to the footplate of some of the earliest and most famous trains in the world.
