Upcoming Aviation TV Programme

Postby Saracenman » Sun Oct 25, 2009 9:06 pm

a new thread for all new upcoming programmes :)

I'll start off with.....

James May's Toy Stories - Airfix

Tue, 27 Oct, 21:00 BBC2

James May is out to prove why traditional, old fashioned toys are still relevant today when he pushes them to the limit in spectacular, supersize challenges. James takes model aeroplanes to a whole new level when he tries to make a full size Spitfire out of Airfix. But the venture soon hits problems when it becomes clear the giant 36 foot pieces may not be strong enough and nobody knows how they will fit together.

Seconded!! Both bits!
Thoroughly entertaining to watch, and take part in as far as I could see. History, technology, teamwork, Art, Graphic Design....all rolled into one! I wonder if Dave from Cornwall fancies something a little larger........??

And Caroline Grace has the most wonderful voice........... :)
