Former Top Gear presenter James May is heading back to BBC Two with a live two-part special broadcast from one of Britain’s biggest and busiest car factories.
May will be joined by Kate Humble and Ant Anstead as he ventures into BMW’s MINI plant in Oxford, where a car is built every 67 seconds.
Building Cars Live will also step outside the factory, visiting car manufacturers across the UK to fully explore the evolution of global mass car production, bust the myth that British manufacturing is dead, and venture into the incredible land of the robots.
James May said: “I can’t wait to build a car. Live.”
Kim Shillinglaw, Controller of BBC Two and BBC Four, commented: “Building Cars Live will take BBC Two viewers right under the bonnet of the car manufacturing industry.
“Broadcasting live from the car factory is a really exciting way to reveal the science, engineering and expertise behind the cars on our roads, and I’m delighted it will be presented by the hugely talented team of James May, Kate Humble and Ant Anstead.”
