Time Shift

The surprising story of the hidden powerhouse behind the globalised world, the diesel engine, a 19th-century invention that has become indispensable to the 21st century. It's a turtle-versus-hare tale in which the diesel engine races the petrol engine in a competition to replace ageing steam technology, a race eventually won hands down by diesel. Car enthusiast presenter Mark Evans gets excitedly hands-on with some of the many applications of Mr Diesel's original creation, from vintage submarines and tractors to locomotive trains and container ships.
