How Do They Do It? is one of the world's best-known and highest-rating engineering shows. Each series lifts the lid on the modern world and tells you how it works – from space rockets and nuclear subs to light bulbs and razors.

Each episode features three stories, filmed in multiple locations around the world – from how a coal-power-plant works and how to make a $20 million astronaut suit, to how they grow vanilla and design a roller-coaster.

This series takes viewers to every corner of the globe to reveal the extraordinary stories behind some of the most amazing, and some of the most ordinary objects in our lives.
