BEAT THE ANCESTORS
If you’re a gadget junkie, history lover or fan of all things wartime, you will love this series.
Engineer and eco-warrior Dick Strawbridge challenges a team of engineers to rebuild and improve some of history’s most impressive machines using their 21st century knowledge. In the opening episode a team is tasked with building a Ribauldequin, a medieval machine gun. It was the first multi-barrelled gun used against armour-clad knights. It’s big boys playing with toys and it’s a lot of fun.
