How our favorite foods and products are made? Cherry Healey and Gregg Wallace go into the factories to figure out, while Ruth Goodman tell us about the historical development of the manufacturing process of these products.
Full Steam Ahead maintains the high quality this group of historians have shown in their other series. I'm not a big train fan, but showing, demonstrating, and explaining the huge changes the rails brought to UK (and all modern) society is fascinating.
Each episode packs in a lot of detailed information while moving along quickly and showing living-history details not seen elsewhere.
The hosts are as engaging as they always are and while I expected this series to be less interesting than their other historical series, it was amongst the best.
A good story (history) well told makes any subject interesting. I defy anyone not to be enthralled by the puffing metal monsters after watching this series. Watch this, it's very good.
