Next Monday SBS premieres a new 5 part series, Rise of the Machines.

It takes us inside machines in close up detail, to explore what helps these elite ships, trucks, trains and aircraft rise above all other machines.

From the world’s biggest mega truck to one of the world’s fastest trains…from the world’s most advanced aircraft carrier to a revolutionary airship….from a super smart heavy lift ship to an ingenious heavy lift helicopter…. ground breaking CGI animation explodes the machines apart to uncover the extraordinary inventions hidden under their skin that enables the teams who drive, fly and sail them to be at the top of their game.

This series transforms our understanding of the machines around us.
