New series about big, strong, fast machines

Coming soon…

This brand-new series provides an insight into some of the most formidable mechanical monsters known to man, giving the inside track on the biggest, strongest and fastest machines around.

This first programme looks at five of the best submarines, including The Royal Navy’s HMS Turbulent. The latest in billion-pound technology, her mission is to find and destroy enemy targets. She is powered by a nuclear reactor and can stay submerged for up to 90 days.

Also featured on the programme are the VIIC Uboat, which nearly won the Second World War for the Germans; the ROV (remotely operated vehicle), used to rescue trapped subs; the mighty 21-ton LR5; and the Flying Dolphin, claimed by many to be the most fun you can have underwater.
