    Anyone been watching this?. Some might find it as dull as dishwater, but I like James May with his quirky/funny observations and fact nuggets, plus (strangely?) enjoy watching things being assembled and the insights into how they work.

    All 3 available on iplayer.

    Yeah seen the first two so far.
    A good 30mins paced show.
    Think you got to like engineering or had really played with Lego/Meccano to enjoy the show.
    Good to know about the 999 thing :)

    I enjoyed it but he did rather cheat a bit over the telephone since he clearly left the wiring out of the re-assemble. Also I don't think the BT network still responds to phones of this vintage, but I may be wrong. Dialling by pulses probably does not work any more. The holes in the bells are not exactly central. This enabled them to be rotated to a position where the noise they made could be less strident when they needed to be quieter.
