About the Show

Celebrating the inventions and innovations that changed the way we lived forever, engineer and showman Brendan Walker sets out to discover the ingenuity, innovation and life-changing science behind the inventions that took drab post-war Britain and launched it into a colour-drenched world of tomorrow. Brendan will learn from practical, hands-on experience exactly what it took to bring about the ‘50s revolution, experimenting with everything from how to make a Formica kitchen to how to turn a vat of chemicals into a pair of super-sharp 1950s nylon trousers.
