Watched it on i player this morning, very good. Have also been enjoying the latest series of 'Richard Hammonds Engineering Connections' too. Like the LNG carrier one, that's given me another idea for my 8ft supertanker hull!! Dave.  :-))

Saw most of it on Monday, Great fun! - James may is one of my favourite presenters on TV at the moment.
(Unlike that Hammond Muppet!)

What was the story with the train that dramatically exploded?!?!

It was running on sauerkraut wine Martin, apparently a volatile and obnoxious fuel.
