Steve Brooker is 6ft 5in, a former professional skateboarder, a sub three hour marathon runner...
Mud Men Johnny Vaughan and Steve Brooker are on a muddy historical adventure, mudlarking along the banks of the Thames and beyond as they take their search for hidden history further afield like never before. Our intrepid team hunt not for buried treasure, but artefacts that could change our understanding of the past forever.
The Mud Men are always up for the challenge as their quests see them tackle British history by getting hands on with anything, whether it’s firing canons, driving steam trains, looking after sheep or facing petrol bombs. Nothing is beyond the Mud Men as they always seem to encounter some rather unexpected, often unpleasant, challenges, including ghost hunting, creating a football from a sheep’s bladder and making cloth using stale urine.
Whatever the topic, whatever the challenge, the Mud Men dig history like no-one else.
