Does anyone know the name of a TV series/documentary that ran on Discovery channel and is featuring a British actor whose name I cannot recall but I do remember that he show all the stuff that a "real man" should be able to do, fix etc.

I remember the only episode I watched had several questions - how to diffuse a World war II bomb, how to court a lady and several other.

Are you sure it was on the Discovery Channel?… – Andrew Latham Jan 22 '12 at 18:22
Yeah, it aired on Discovery in Croatia. It's probably because in Europe Discovery doesn't air only its own documentaries but other as well. – user643 Jan 22 '12 at 22:10

This must be James May's Man Lab. The mission statement (from the site):

James May sets out to help modern man relearn some of the vital skills that are now in danger of being lost forever

I remember seeing episodes of it, not sure if it was on Discovery, probably the BBC.
