Genius of Invention

The BBC's new series The Genius of Invention is scheduled to start on Thursday 24 January. It's not clear yet which of the four BBC2 episodes will feature the invention of the lawn mower but there are bound to be lots of interesting machines and devices covered during the series.

How Britain Worked

Channel 4 has made the recent series of How Britain Worked available on YouTube. The episode from the Birmingham Botanical Garden featuring the new Budding mower, made with the help of club member Brian Radam, can be found here or by clicking on the image. The whole programme is interesting but for anyone with limited time the section on the mower starts at about 19:30 into the video.
