How Do They Do It?

How Do They Do It? (DCL)

How Do They Do It?, showcases the miraculous feats of engineering which support life in the 21st century.

Many of us take for granted objects which make up the modern world; from pencils and trainers to escalators and railway tracks. As the world continues to evolve into a more automated and mechanised society, we grow further removed from the way things are made and how things are done. 

In this series we discover how formation skydivers train in a wind tunnel, plus learn how a bullet proof vest can stop a dozen rounds at point blank range. See how a spacesuit keeps an astronaut alive and how a letter gets from London to the Hebrides in just one day. This is just the beginning...

Watch How Do They Do It? on weekdays at 5pm.
