Mark Williams's Big Bangs
9:00pm - 10:00pm
Sky One

VIDEO Plus+: 62715
High definition, widescreen

1/4

Fast Show actor Mark Williams used to present industrial history programmes - which was nice - but now he's got a series about explosives, and it's a blast. His enthusiastic attitude is infectious; after all, who wouldn't want to know how to make gunpowder, especially when it involves drinking beer! It helps that Williams's lessons are interspersed with fireworks, explosions and cannon firings. You could say it goes with a bang, but that would be a damp squib of an understatement.

Does anyone know the firework factory that was visited on the show, or know "Paul", the guy Mark Williams interviewed there?

Well it may have taken a while, but we finally have a copy of this program up on the web.
Mad props to portfire sending me the dvds the other day, cheers dude!

You can download the episodes from here:

http://www.flamelabs...hp?dir=bigbangs

You will need to use WinRAR to put the files back together, and the xvid codec to play them if you havent got it already.

Its a great program! Enjoy!

not so nice, got a ton of 403 errors halfway through downloading. Perhaps a data limit has been reached, sounds like a job for bittorrent! I could host the files for a while, I have 2.5TB of Data transfer left for this month. And that way a few people could start to torrent it.

Oop. Apparently the hosts dont agree with a load of video sharing. I'll arrange an alternative.
