How It's Made (DCL)

How It’s Made is a Quest staple, enjoyed by many a viewer before bedtime.

This addictive series leads you through the process of how everyday products, such as apple juice, skateboards, engines, contact lenses, and many more objects are manufactured. All the action is accompanied by mesmerising music.

Here in the UK Tony Hirst (best known for playing Mike Barnes on the soap opera Hollyoaks and in Coronation Street as Paul Kershaw) narrates the show, often peppering the dialogue with humorous puns.

The show started in 2001 and has now surpassed it’s 300th episode! What’s your favourite item featured on the show? Comment below…
