It's about time the great egg race returned to TV screens, with the living legend that is Professor Heinz Wolff .

You know the deal, making suspension bridges out of a newspaper and drinking straws to support a 10 pound weight.

The guy is a legend, loved his accent and total quirkiness. He is up there with other childhood icons like Johnny Ball! :thumb:

Awwww, I liked him. I remember he was on a program where students from different schools would compete. Something like Young scientist of the year. I'll have to look it up.

Yup that's it .... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Sci ... f_the_Year
