The Screen Guide

THE BOFFIN, THE BUILDER AND THE BOMBARDIER is a fast paced, fun, living history format in which three mates deconstruct history by reconstructing the devices that made it. The half hour documentary and interstitial series sees our three characters uncover the secrets of the past by immersing themselves in it – dressing up, with often comedic results – and blowing up... sometimes just for the fun of it. But beneath the good humour is a well-researched documentary with experimental archeology at its core – the replication of objects and methods of the past, to better interpret and understand them. Our audience will get a laugh and at program’s end, and insight into history they may not have had before.
