Previous challenges have included: the constuction of a wind-powered electricity generator, the production and use of textile dyes, and measuring the speed of a glacier.

Wonderful ....
23 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a program which really deserves a prime time slot. The first series was shown at about 1.00am during the week. The latest series is now on in the early evening though on BBC2. This show maroons four scientists somewhere out in the middle of nowhere and they are given projects to create everyday things. It is absolutely mind-blowing to watch some of the stuff they can come with using nature and a few odds and ends. In the last series amongst other things they 'invented' a camera, scuba equipment and a life jacket with flashing lights. Batteries were made from sea water. You never knew what was coming next ...... a really super program that deserves to be more widely seen.
