Summary
This three-part series looks at three high-tech British engineering projects that all share something in common - amazing technology and people with highly specialised skills. The first episode follows the people who build the wing for the world's biggest passenger plane - the Airbus A380. The second program looks at how UK racing team McLaren are adapting some of their F1 technology to build a luxury road car. The final episode goes behind the scenes of a new multimillion- dollar communication satellite being built in the UK. Britain is one of the world leaders in aerospace manufacturing and there's one part of a plane the UK is reputed to make better than anyone else - the wings. The A380 wing is the largest ever produced for a civil airliner, at 17.7 metres from front to back and 36.3 metres from fuselage to wingtip. The film follows some of the people who work at the two main Airbus factories in the UK. In Filton, near Bristol, it goes inside the company's cutting-edge research and development facility to observe engineers and designers at work, while in Broughton in North Wales, the site of one of Europe's biggest factories, the program follows the people who actually put the massive wings together
