Scrapheap Challenge - Channel 4

Scrapheap Challenge was a Channel 4 staple for almost 10 years. Making up the bulk of their popular science output.

It was a great concept with two teams competing to make machines out of the junk found in a scrapyard and then racing each other in their creations.

Made by RDF Media, Martin was recruited to work on Series 7 of the show.

In his capacity as Associate Producer, he researched all the challenges and show guests and liaised with the engineering team on a daily basis.

He also got to sample multi-camera and single camera directing - directing short programme segments & running the build camera crews.

It was good fun to make and a great series to be a part of.

Broadcaster: Channel 4 - 13 x 50 minutes Popular Science. Production Company: RDF Media Ltd.
