[edit] Information

How Do They Do It? (Series 1) How Do They Do It? Is the ultimate guide to everything. No wonder it s one of the most popular science shows on the planet. Ever wondered how they turn sea-water into air on a nuclear submarine? Or how they make the sharpest knives ever created? Or how they build the huge golden satellites that make your sat-nav work? How Do They Do It? has all the answers. From swaying skyscrapers to speeding skydivers, from bullet trains to bullet-proof cars, from digging diamonds beneath a volcano to creating the latest $20 million astronaut suit. Robert Llewellyn s funny, irreverent, fascinating pop-science series takes you round the world to examine the tallest, widest, heaviest, fastest, most amazing bits of technology on the planet. From the eye-watering 12 million-horsepower engines sitting beneath the space shuttle, to the jaw-droppingly massive rock crusher that gobbles 22 tonnes of rock every minute, and the upsettingly humungous 650-metre long, 30,000-tonne coal digger (three times as heavy as the Eiffel Tower). You don t know what BIG means, till you’ve watched How Do They Do It? Crammed with amazing facts and awesome pictures, How Do They Do It? tells the most intriguing, incredible stories from the world of science and engineering.
