QUOTE James May's Top Toys
Wed 21 Dec, 20:00 - 21:00 60 mins
A celebration of the toys which have survived across the decades, presented by a man who still plays with them.
When James May was three, his father gave him a toy car for Christmas, and a life behind the wheel and under a bonnet became his destiny. 42 year old James takes us on a tour of his childhood mind as he rifles through his boy toy favourites which include Meccano, Lego, Scalectrix, Airfix and his all time number one toy - the train set. His love of engineering and building things has shaped the ingredients of his entire toy cupboard. There's not a microchip in sight. He still plays with his toys - still loves building things with his various sets. Each toy prompts a story - a history told via archive, anecdote and obsessive collector.
PS Even the BBC cannot spell Scalextric!
