How Britain Worked
« on: October 21, 2012, 11:52:21 AM »
A few months ago someone posted a picture of Guy Martin filming on the Great Orme Tramway, he has a new series starting at 8pm this evening on Channel 4 celebrating the workers of the Industrial Revolution so it's highly possible the filming was for part of this series. I just thought I'd mention it for anyone who may be interested & want to watch/Sky+ it.

Just spent 45 mins looking at T.V.----very unusual for me. Ive never heard of Guy Martin before spotting this thread. Who is he?  He certainl knows his stuff on engineering. Mike

His day job is racing motorcycles, primarily road races like the IOM TT, but he's also a truck mechanic like his father before him. Being quite a colourful character his popularity and interest in engineering has lead to a television career, some of his shows are even used in British schools to teach children about the Industrial Revolution.

Guy did a previous series on a narrow boat, he reminds me of a young Fred Dibnah, very good at what he does!
