Absolutely Fascinating - How Britain Worked review by PN

This was my first Guy Martin show that I'd seen, I found him incredibly enthusiastic about everything he was explaining. The series picks some industrial gems that helped forge Britain's place in the world, from the Steam Engine to Mills, Fishing Trawlers to Victorian Botanical Gardens.

Guy goes into great detail, helped with diagrams and wonderful explanations about the nitty gritty of things. He has a love for 'graft' and you learn a lot of interesting facts about the workers of the time. I recommend this highly, one of the best mechanical documentaries I've seen in a long time.
