As with every set of wheels, there’s a yarn behind the classic and why it has been overlooked for so long, including why its going under the hammer.
Bangers & Cash is set in the picturesque, quintessential English village of Thornton Le-Dale in North Yorkshire, where the Mathewsons run a family business from a bygone era.
Air Television’s Andy Joynson said:
We’re excited to be bringing some amazing classic cars to the screen with the help of the most knowledgeable experts in the business. The cars bring people together and we’ll explore the great stories behind them. We think viewers will really warm to the
Matthewsons– they are a real family business spanning three generations and what they don’t know about the golden age of motoring and the cars that made it, isn’t worth knowing.
The new TV series has been ordered by UKTV director of commissioning, Richard Watsham and UKTV genre general manager for comedy & entertainment, Steve North. The series is produced by Air Television with Andy Joynson as executive producer. Natalie Rose will executive produce for UKTV.
Yesterday channel director, Gerald Casey, said:
We’re looking forward to taking the Yesterday audience on a nostalgia drive with the team at Matthewsons as they unearth some classic British motors.
