Plum Pictures has been commissioned to make a major six part engineering series for BBC2 in which James May will undertake massive structural feats using toy building materials such as Lego and Meccano.
Architects, designes and engineers are being sought to appear in the series and help May with his ambitious challenges which will include building full scale houses and bridges from these materials. Ideally these experts will share May's passion for these toys and will be able to suggest ingenious ways to overcome the structural and organisational problems that will occur.
Plum pictures are also particularly interested in finding a structural engineer who can test assess the building properties for materials such as LEGO, Meccano and plasticine.
The programmes will film at different times between April and September 2009. Most of the shoots are likely to be at weekends although the odd week day may also be required. Each episode will only require a few days involvement.
If you think you could help James inspire people by showing what can be achieved with imagination, ingenuity, sound technical skills and 2 million pieces of Lego, please get in contact with Joe Johnson - email@example.com - as soon as possible with a CV, a photo and a brief covering letter outlining why you are interested in the project.
Previous television experience is not required.
