ENGINE ADDICT WITH JIMMY DE VILLE

As an engineer, race car driver, adventurer and soldier, Jimmy has been tinkering with and rebuilding engines and vehicles his entire life. In ENGINE ADDICT WITH JIMMY DE VILLE, Jimmy will explore abandoned factories, junkyards and deserted airfields to unearth an incredible range of combustion engines across the globe – traveling to Poland, India, Brazil, Sweden, Austria and the United Kingdom during the series.

Drawing on the guidance of local engine experts, Jimmy will uncover the history and heritage behind these iconic engines and the vehicles they powered, and modify them for use in his own extreme hand-built vehicles. In a world of convenience and lust for the new, consumers often overlook the value of products they toss aside. Luckily for extreme engineers like Jimmy, their trash is his treasure to turn into a masterpiece that defies regular conventions of travel. Each episode concludes with Jimmy ultimately testing the vehicles on the toughest terrain that each country can throw at him, from taking a 30-year-old car engine to power a snowmobile up Poland’s Tatra Mountains to pairing two motorbike engines in a self-built dune buggy across India’s scorching Thar Desert.

GROWING UP DOWN’S

In a film that aims to redefine perceptions and explode the myths about Down’s Syndrome, Growing Up Down’s follows the incredible journey of a theatre group of young adults with Down’s as they put together a touring production of Hamlet.

Filmed both inside and outside the rehearsal room over eighteen months, we see each actor face big challenges in their personal lives that affect their relationship with the group and their work on the play. From finding love to helping troubled friends, from body image to choosing role models, from coming to terms with who they are to living independently, the actors confront issues that all young adults face on the path to maturity.

However, in this film they are experienced by people with one of the most widely recognised, yet least understood, learning disabilities. The film is produced, directed and filmed by Will Jessop. Will is the brother of Tommy Jessop, the actor playing Hamlet.

THE GREAT CULTURE QUIZ

The UK’s leading arts institutions go head-to-head for the ultimate test of their arts and cultural knowledge in our brand new quiz show for Sky Arts.

From cave paintings to Lady Gaga, The Great Culture Quiz pushes the experts, and viewers at home, to the very limit of their arts knowledge.

We’ll see who can really claim to being the most knowledgeable (and who turns out to be the most competitive) from the great and good of the British arts world, from the British Museum, the Royal Court Theatre and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra to Handel House Museum, the Bach Choir and the National Ballet of Ireland, among others. The quiz is hosted by Anita Rani, and those taking part will be showing off their knowledge of their own institution in a specialist round and battling it out in a quick-fire A-Z finale.

And the prize? Apart from the warm glow of triumph, each team brings along a prize related to their organisation and the losing team will have to hand over their prize to the winning team once the final scores have been totted up.
