All six episodes of the TV series in which presenter Guy Martin explores the history of workers in Britain during the Industrial Revolution. Guy Martin, lorry mechanic and British motorcycle racer, will help a team of volunteers restore an iconic machine or building from our industrial past. Through each structure he will tell the story of a landmark: the railways, the factories, the docks, the mines, the garden and the holiday. Each episode focuses on the jobs and skills of the Industrial Revolution s unsung heroes, rather than the familiar famous names - so the ordinary men, women and children who executed the engineers ideas. Throughout the series, Guy works on a steam locomotive, a Yorkshire sawmill, the oldest surviving Brixham sailing trawler and visits the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The episodes are: 'train', 'Mill', 'Seaside', 'Mine', 'trawler' and 'Garden'.
