Producer & Presenter
The original mechanics format kicks off with the complete build, from scratch, of a classic V8 supercar. Presented and filmed in a way that makes viewers feel they are there, as it happens, step-by-step.
No script. No voiceover. No contrived jeopardy. Made for amateur enthusiasts and fronted by one of their own.
In all, eight Is Born series follow Mark Evans on ten ambitious workshop adventures – kit builds and major restorations. And, not just cars. There are motorbikes, an extreme off-roader and even a couple of aircraft!
Discovery H&L’s most popular mechanics strand in the UK. Globally, Discovery’s most successful international lifestyle format.
