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? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… Jan 22, 2012 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.

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.
