RICHARD Hammond returns to TV with his new series Crazy Contraptions on Channel 4.

The programme will see engineers from across the UK compete in a number of challenges in hopes of being crowned the series winner.

What is Richard Hammond's Crazy Contraptions?

Richard Hammond’s Crazy Contraptions on Channel 4 is about a team of amateur engineers trying to build their own chain reaction machine mechanisms made from everyday materials that complete basic domestic tasks.

The contestants will be split into two teams and go head-to-head in weekly challenges to design, create and showcase a new construction in just four days.

They will also receive support from world-leading author on chain reaction machines, Zach Umperovitch, who will explain the scientific principles involved.

Each team will be judged based on their design and build quality as they fight to be crowned the series winner.

Talking about the series, Hammond said: “As soon as the idea was explained to me, I was hooked. I actually tried to build my own chain reaction machine during lockdown – it didn’t end well!

“My failed attempt did however make me appreciate the talent, creativity and determination shown by our teams.

“That said, in amongst the triumphs, there were also plenty of spectacular failures and catastrophes.

“I’m convinced the series will be a great watch for all the family, not only providing totally left-field entertainment, but also presenting science and engineering in a fun and accessible manner.”
