On paper, looking on as a man puts various household objects back together sounds worse than watching paint dry. But here’s James May back with another series doing just that.

And, as he calmly and informatively re-assembles a Triang Hornby Flying Scotsman Train Set from 1972 – 138 separate parts (even the tiny electric motor is all in bits) – it can’t be denied that there’s a certain hypnotic charm about the whole thing.

It’s probably sexist and ageist to suggest that this is mainly going to appeal to middle-aged men, so let’s not, but there are three more programmes in the series.
