Filmed at S Norton’s Bankfield depot in Liverpool, the episode, hosted by Maddie Moate, follows a car’s journey as it is transformed into shredded scrap metal ready to be exported across the world.
Preschoolers and younger viewers will see how a car has oil and petrol taken out of it on the depolluting rig, before it makes its way through the shredder and to the dockside. Even Maddie’s famous Go Pro gets to ride on a 360-grab showing a close up of metal being put into the shredder.
A representative from S Norton said:
“We were pleased to welcome Maddie Moate and the crew of ‘Maddie’s Do You Know?’ to our Liverpool depot. It was good to be able to demonstrate the importance of metals recycling to the younger generation. 95% of a car is recycled, not just the metal, the plastic too! Metal is 100% recyclable and programmes like this are an excellent way for children to be educated in recycling, encouraging them to recycle more.”
The episode – Series 3: 16. Metal Recycling Centre and Road Sign, aired on Monday 9 September on the CBeebies channel and is available via the BBC iPlayer for 29 days.
