Guy Martin's Great Escape

1 x 2 hr

North One Television

Recreating the most iconic movie stunt of all time

The Great Escape is an undoubted classic film. Amongst the many memorable scenes, Steve McQueen’s attempt to jump a pair of 12-foot barbed-wire fences stands out. His effort ends in failure at the second fence. In an exact modern recreation of the jump, Guy Martin uses the same type of bike, on the same type of ramp, over the same type of fence, at the very same location. Can Guy go one better? By training and preparing for this jump, Guy also finds out the behind the scenes stories from one of Hollywood’s most celebrated films and hears from the stars and stuntmen who worked on it, as well as the extraordinary World War II tale it is based upon.
