If it's as appalling as the "Train Spotting Live" that they did a few years ago, fronted by Peter Snow among others then it won't be worth watching. Hopefully they've learnt something from that an this next foray into a transport based hobby will be rather more successful!

I didn't see that, but I understand it also featured the delectable Hannah Fry talking about the mathematics of railways.

Here's hoping ...

If it's the BBC then I will be running the stopwatch to see how long it takes them to have a pop at President Trump. Context? They'll find one.

Presumably if they don't mention him at all you'll come back here to apologise for such a ridiculous bit of shoe-horning?

More importantly, does anyone know when it's on?

I believe that the proposed presenter will make this an excellent programme. 🤔😬👍

Ah yes, every airport spotter community used to have a Jason - spotting aircraft that weren't there !
AFAIK, none of them sought investment to do so, however...

I remember the last time tv tried to film a spotter spotting they found a parker wearing long haired individual with a snotty nose and a note pad. Hope they don't find anymore of those.

Hannah Fry? See where you are going Dave Reid. Not her area, but my choice would be Suzannah Lipscomb. Planes? What planes?
