CARHENGE
We made carhenge for the car and engine programme. There are several permanent carhenges in the world, most famously one in the US desert. Ours only lasted two months, but it had a good site, and many people made pilgrimages to it from the main road a mile away. It is best seen in the opening shot of the car programme.

CAR HOUSE
The car house, made with Rex and Graham Murray who owns the local scrapyard, was just made for a photo to publicise the series – it didn’t actually appear in any of the films.

CAR  WORSHIP
Treating car worship as a religion, we filmed a procession carrying a car engine for the end of programme two.
