Fred Dibnah's World of Steam, Steel and Stone - Changing the Landscape & Great British Builders

£3.99

Product description

Two episodes of the series, released posthumously in 2006, celebrating the many sides of Fred Dibnah.

Changing the Landscape (programme 9)
As Fred was growing up in Bolton, his house was surrounded by canals, railway lines, bridges and tunnels and he was always fascinated by the skills of the men who built them. The passion and enthusiasm he showed for great engineering projects throughout the ages, has helped to appreciate more fully the way in which so much of our landscape has been influenced by human activity.

Great British Builders (programme 10)
Fred, who served his apprenticeship as a joiner, shows a great appreciation for the skills of the men who built Britain's great castles, palaces and country houses, and offers real insights into the building techniques of the past. In this episode, we see Fred giving a number of demonstrations, including the hilarious falling down arch.
