Get kettle on Guy Martin on BBC1 tonight

BBC1 tonight, 7.30pm everyone's favourite motorbike racer and tea drinker extraordinaire is featured in a new 6 part series about renovating a narrowboat using old techniques

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00z88v0

19:30 19:57 The Boat That Guy Built
A Cup of Tea
1/6. Guy builds his own 18th century blast furnace to cast an iron pot so he can boil water.

The man is a tea drinking legend, so looks like tonights episode, called 'A cup of tea' will see him doing what he does best... getting a brew on.

Filming started last year, but had to be put on hold for a few months as he had a mountain bike accident and knocked all his front teeth out.

Well, I have never heard of this bloke.

BUT, if it involves messing around with stuff and drinking tea (Yorkshire Tea) I shall be watching.

About time there was something decent on TV!

Watch the programme Derek. He is a very interesting character. And a hell of a bike racer.


As for the Yorkshire tea I miss that down here. The last mate that came down by car asked me what I wanted from UK.

I asked for 'lots' of Yorkshire tea bags. He bought down 2500 with him

I am supprised how many people dont know Guy Martin!

This man IS the IOM TT legend. He had a crash last year (I think) that most humans would not of survived. Ball of flames over the hill towards the camera with arms and legs everywhere, thats Guy Martin!

He is the only man that I know that goes round the IOM and into a corner at about 130mph while tucking his knee up away from an inside kerb while ducking so he dont scrape his head on a stone built wall. He finishes off the corner with a wheelie and getting air while still leaning!!!

Fruitcake!

This would'nt be the bloke who went down the west side of Africa on a bike would it? Can't remember the name but I was looking for things to read in my dinner hour at work & saw it on Amazon & he very much into his tea drinking. The review were fairly mixed & I'd found a few books already to buy so I passed on it for now.

I've seen the trailer for this series about the boat & thought it looked good!
