UKTV has recommissioned Secrets of the Transport Museum (10x60') for its leading factual channel, Yesterday. The series is again narrated by Sanjeev Bhaskar.
The series goes behind the scenes at the Brooklands Museum in Surrey following the skilled and enthusiastic volunteers who work to preserve the array of historic racing cars, motorbikes and aeroplanes that have a permanent home at the museum.
The first series launched with a strong audience of 486k for the opening episode, one of the most successful series launches ever for the channel, and the series as a whole achieved a consolidated average audience of 378k.
UKTV's Helen Nightingale said: "I can't wait to get back to Brooklands! There's so much history, knowledge and enthusiasm there from those passionate experts; and Middlechild do such a great job at capturing that and sharing it with the viewers on screen."
David Sumnall, executive producer and managing director of Middlechild Productions said: "Brooklands is a truly magical place full of amazing characters and incredible stories so we couldn't be more excited to be back. To top it off we get to work with the brilliant team at UKTV again. We can't wait for the Yesterday viewers to see what we've been filming!"
