UKTV has commissioned Secrets of the Transport Museum for factual channel Yesterday.
The ten-part series, narrated by Sanjeev Bhaskar, will go behind the scenes of the Brooklands Museum in Surrey and meet the skilled and passionate volunteers who endeavour to preserve the museum’s historic racing cars, motorbikes and aeroplanes.
Brooklands has a special place in motoring history as the birthplace of motor racing and the location of the first British Grand Prix.
The museum prides itself on being one of the most important heritage sites for the auto and aviation engineering world.
It also cares for some of the most original and important cars that have been made over the last 100 years, including the record-breaking 1933 Napier-Railton, Ayrton Senna’s iconic 1991 McLaren Formula One car and a Concorde, which was originally built there.
UKTV’s senior commissioning editor, Helen Nightingale said: “It’s a real privilege to take the Yesterday viewers behind the scenes at the historic Brooklands Museum.
“The commitment and vast knowledge of the volunteer workforce is amazing, and to be able to get under the bonnet and kick the tires of some of the most iconic vehicles in British transport history is going to be a real treat.”
Secrets of the Transport Museum is filming at Brooklands Museum in accordance to Covid-19 procedures and regulations.
