Engineering Connections

Richard Hammond reveals the startling engineering connections behind Hong Kong International Airport, one of the busiest and biggest in the world, sited on a specially constructed island. Then the world's largest construction project it drew inspiration from a 13th Century Arab irrigation machine to create new land, and a WWII bomber and car suspension to make the terminal building light, airy and typhoon-proof. To reduce lost baggage designers turned to a bizarre Cold War spy device and a brass band was the proof of a crucial scientific principle which protects pilots from wind shear, all resulting in the new gateway to Asia.

King Fishers

In King Fishers, we challenge three passionate fishermen from three different areas to a head to head battle to determine who is the King Fisher of them all. They travel hundreds of miles across North America, from the edge of the Tropics to the heart of the Tundra, in search of some of the most exciting fish found in these waters. From the sheer variety of North Atlantic species to Bass fishing on a secret lake in California, finally ending with Halibut fishing on the wild Alaskan seas. But it isn't just about who catches the most and who catches the biggest. It's also about who hosts the ultimate fishing trip, with marks awarded both for fish caught and the whole experience. The competition ebbs and flows and the banter flies as these three anglers take in the sites and sounds of each location: from hand feeding pre-historic fish, to dog sledding and spinning out of control on a frozen lake. Who will give their all to snatch the title of King Fisher?

Car SOS

20:30
In the late 1960s BMW were looking to break into the US market and the sports saloon they created to make the right waves was the 2002, a 2 litre, 100bhp tourer, it instantly became a successful race car with Hans Stuck winning the Nurburgring 24-hour race in 1970. As a result the 2002 arrived in the states in 1967 to instant success and rapid and highly profitable sales. BMW didn't rest on its laurels, in 1973 they started producing a fuel injected turbo version of the 2002 : the tii. Launched at the 1973 Frankfurt Motor Show it was BMW's, and Europe's, first turbocharged production car, it produced 170 bhp and had a top speed of 115mph and where its predecessor had been a success on the track the tii continued on the World rally Circuit where it went on to win many rallies and hill climbs. In actuality only 1,672 Turbos were ever built, but they achieved BMWs aim of making them a World renowned brand name in a few short years and salvaging the tatters or the BMW distribution network in the US. With its striking "shark nose" front end the 2002 set the style that BMWs were to follow to this day. Very few 2002tiis now exist making them not just a fun car to drive but also a sure fire commodity on the classics market.
