Top Trumps

LIVING CHANNEL – Fridays from 4 September, 10pm

Inspired by the popular card game, Top Trumps sees players immersing themselves in the technology and capabilities of fast cars, machines, super-ships, extreme planes, helicopters and engines. The show provides fun and fact filled insights, as the player presenters experience everything first hand, on location. Each episode features a different theme – from warships, super yachts, fire engines, mammoth machines, fast cars etc. We see a variety of examples in the form of Top Trump cards, prior to each player selecting a particular model to go and research in the fast lane! They immerse themselves in the machine – meeting experts, specialists, and play and experiment with the object to its limits. Each player then chooses two top fact categories from speed, endurance, number of crew, manoeuvrability, or versatility. The Top Trumps computer chooses a fifth mystery category – and then the players reveal their statistics – whose machine will be the victor? A must-see for machine lovers and those curious about all things big and fast, Top Trumps brings macho statistics to life!
