Dave Myers and Si King get their hands dirty visiting and taking part in projects to restore Britain's industrial past. Lending a helping hand to the passionate and skilled volunteers who are breathing new life into the machines that once made Britain the workshop of the world, it is a fun but also personal journey for the Bikers, whose families were both shaped by the industrial revolution. They begin by joining some ex-miners who are meticulously restoring Pleasley Colliery in Derbyshire. There is personal passion for Si as he helps to restore a steam winding engine, as his grandfather was a winder. Dave helps to celebrate 150 years of the London Underground by by putting Met 1, the tube's oldest working steam train, through its paces as it prepares to carry passengers a century after it went out of service. The Bikers also help fire up a barn engine on a Hampshire farm for the first time in 60 years and discover that the fairground was the last word in Victorian fun. The British Isles was and is the home of engineering pioneers who have designed and built amazing machines that change peoples lives, Si explained. Uncovering their stories will be an unforgettable adventure and it means a lot to us as both our families have strong ties to industry. Sis grandfather worked in the pits as a winchman and my family were ship workers in Barrow-in-Furness, or the Chicago of the North as it was known, added Dave. My mum kept links to the shipyards working as a crane driver and rediscovering more about my familys past will be an emotional journey as Ill get a glimpse of what their lives were really like.
