The series is written and presented by Evan himself, and the first episode focuses on manufacturing and looks at the shift from large-scale, low value production to high-value sectors such as supercars and jet engines. For a sneak preview of Evan being taken for a (very fast) spin in a McLaren MP4-12C, click here.
The accompanying book of the series is also out now – and delves even deeper in examining the issues that face our economy today. From manufacturing to technology, design and the services industries, the book provides cutting edge analysis - as well as some very entertaining stories – about what we make and why it matters.
The press have been unanimous in their advance praise so far:
‘5* engaging’ – Mail on Sunday
‘…superb programme – both eye-opening and richly entertaining’ – The Times
‘… impressive – and a rare bright light amid the economic gloom’ – Daily Mail
‘…engaging company: sagacious and upbeat’- The Telegraph
‘Despite being so intelligently filmed and presented, the real success of the series lies in the writing, and those who wish to know more are recommended to read Davis’s excellent accompanying book of the same name which like the programmes is both surprising and rewarding. Don’t miss this.' – Observer
