THE SECRET LIFE OF MACHINES 2
'The Secret Life of Machines' was the title of 3 TV series about
the history and workings of everyday machines, shown on C4 in Britain, and on the
discovery channel everywhere else.
The re-mastered versions of these
films will be launched in May 2021
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.
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 didnt
actually appear in any of the films.
Treating car worship as a religion, we filmed a procession carrying a
car engine for the end of programme two.
