Scrap Kings is an action packed, incendiary, factual series focused on the people in the frontline demolishing and scrapping Britain’s redundant buildings, structures and vehicles.
Whether it’s the explosive blow down of an old police station or a high reach digger toppling a tower block, the demolition crews are constantly under pressure. Each episode features the hard-working heroes from the world of scrap – whether it’s with gas burner in hand to cut up an aeroplane, or sledgehammer and saw to break a caravan.
In Scrap Kings there’s no such thing as waste. Metals are reworked and redundant boats, trains and automobiles get stripped for spares then crushed into scrap. Materials emerge to be reused. Stone and concrete is reworked for construction aggregates. Redundant aluminium turned into new bars. Old wood into fuel or new products.
What’s left on the floor is picked over by artists and hobbyists who create their own metal masterpieces from reformed spitfires to bespoke furniture.
