Building Cars Live (BBC2)
The former Top Gear presenter will be teaming up with Kate Humble and For The Love of Cars co-presenter Ant Anstead for a new live two-part series how cars are made.
The show will come live from BMW's Mini factory in Oxford, where a new car rolls off the production line every 67 seconds.
The show will go behind the scenes of the UK's car manufacturing industry to explain the science and engineering involved.
It will consist of two 90 minute live episodes and will air in the autumn.
The programmes will track in real time the transformation from raw materials to finished vehicle and will broadcast live from BMW's Mini plant in Oxford.
A press release from the BBC announcing the show included a quote from May saying: "I can't wait to build a car. Live."

The Hams Hall engine plant near Birmingham is one of the key suppliers to MINI production at the Oxford-based vehicle manufacturing plant that will also feature in the programme this autumn.

Annoying that they've changed the dates, but we'll still do our factory tour on Monday 19th as planned.

It was too much hard work getting it set up to change it Smile
