BBC Big Life Fix

Hosted by Simon Reeve, Big Life Fix sees a collective of builders, designers, engineers and computer geeks aim to use science to change the lives of British people who have problems that are either too specific, bespoke, or too expensive to be fixed by mainstream solutions.

Travelling the breadth of the UK, Reeve and the Big Life Fixers team will marry technology with need and solve life dilemmas ranging from health-related issues to problems with socio-economic impacts. There’s an eleven-year old boy born without hands and feet who is desperate to find a way to ride a bike; inhabitants of a remote village with little means of communication due to no mobile signal and little landline capabilities; and a farmer struggling to defend his livelihood from sheep rustling.

Big Life Fix starts on Wednesday 7th December BBC TWO at 9pm
