Hornby: A Model World

Hornby: A Model World


A new ten-part television documentary series looking behind-the-scenes at Hornby Hobbies has launched on the Yesterday channel.

The series follows the manufacturer’s development teams as they work on new projects across the company’s portfolio of products including Hornby, Airfix, Corgi and Scalextric. Episodes also feature footage of modellers and visits to preservation sites, while the Hornby Magazine team are also set to appear in episode eight later this year.

The first programme debuted on Monday October 11 and featured development of the new limited edition Hornby Dublo air-smoothed ‘Merchant Navy’ 4-6-2 and provided insight into the company’s future digital sound plans, too.

Further episodes will cover progress on Hornby’s forthcoming ‘OO’ models of the LNER ‘P2’ 2-8-2 and Class 370 Advanced Passenger Train. Pete Waterman’s ‘OO’ gauge 64ft Making Tracks West Coast Main Line layout is also set to feature.

Hornby: A Model World is aired Monday nights at 9pm, with repeats at 8pm on Thursdays on Yesterday (Freeview 26, Freesat 159, Sky 155, Virgin 129, BT/Plusnet/TalkTalk/YouView 26). You can also catch-up on demand at UKTV Play.
