Buckle up for an incredible journey into the fascinating secret world of the car factory. Every 68 seconds a brand new car drives off the production line at the MINI Plant in Oxford. In this brand new series, James May, Kate Humble and Ant Anstead go live behind the scenes to bring us this modern miracle in real time. Over two nights they’ll reveal the science, engineering and people that keep us all on the road, and see a car built from start to finish in a little over 24 hours.

Tonight James makes friends with an army of diligent robots and busts the myth that British manufacturing is dead.

With access all areas live on the factory floor, the team will see exactly how a car is born – a car that tomorrow will be driven off the line ready for life on the open road.
