Can Bob build it? With Tarmac’s help, he can!
Building services specialists Tarmac have been chosen to advise hit kids TV show Bob the Builder on the more technical aspects of building a road. In an upcoming storyline, likeable builder Bob and his friends will be using products similar to those manufactured by Tarmac, and were looking to go about it in the most realistic way possible.
With over 100 years’ accumulated experience, Tarmac was able to provide expert knowledge as well as a simple, ‘How to Build a Road’ guide which the producers of the show found invaluable.
Project Development Manager Nizar Gazireh was on hand to answer the query. He comments: “We were very happy to be able to help, and that the specialist knowledge gets out to children – it’s what we aim to achieve with Tarmac’s education programme. It’s great to know that when kids are watching episodes of Bob the Builder, they’re learning some real facts about construction too.”
The episode will be screening in the next series of Bob the Builder in 2004.
