During the Holocaust, a Nazi major named Karl Plagge, arrived in Vilnius, Lithuania as part of the occupation force. When he saw that the SS was hellbent on murdering every Jewish man, woman and child, Plagge decided to save Jews, rather than murder them. So he ran a covert operation. The programme tracks their three stories and, ultimately, brings to light the unknown tale of a Schindler-type German who listened to his conscience, instead of his superiors.

Each show, Pro driver Shane Lynch sets two teams of mechanics a task of epic proportions… to build a one-off vehicle from scrapyard junk that can out-perform his top of-the range supercar. During four manic days, the teams are expertly guided by head engineer Ralph Hosier, before they hit the racetrack aiming to topple Shane’s four-wheeled icon. From acceleration to braking, handling to grip, the series gets under the hood of supercar engineering.
