Robbie Coltrane, in his own unique style, tells the story of some of the greatest engines ever built.
This DVD contains six episodes, each covering a different type of engine - the Imperial Steam Engine, the Workhorse Diesel, the Exhilarating Supercharger, the Laid Back V8, the Noisy, Smelly Two-stroke, and the Jet, the engine that went on to shrink the world.
This is the highly-acclaimed Channel 4 Television series - A celebration of Design, Engineering and Individual Genius.
"If you want to see a man single-handedly remove the engine from a trabant, or toast marshmallows in the afterburner of a Military Jet Aircraft, then this is the film for you" - the Guardian.
"I have a confession to make" says Robbie Coltrane. "I am a nosey bastard. I am incapable of walking past a piece of machinery without wanting to know all the details of its private life."
