The fifth episode sees Rachel Riley meeting a group of British engineers working on making the first car to travel at 1,000mph.

Romesh Ranganathan investigates how the food industry uses technology to manipulate our taste buds, while it's Ben Miller's turn to risk life and limb, this time by having flaming crossbow bolts fired at his head. Rather him than us.

The show also features a new kind of fire extinguisher that uses sound to put out flames. Could come in handy for those flaming crossbow bolts.

A beauty pageant might seem like a throwback to the 1950s, but this documentary proves the tradition is still going strong, even if it does have a new twist.

Namely: it's populated by transgender people. Why would they take part?

Some want to raise money to put their sperm on ice to start a family at some point in the future, some want to raise awareness, some recognition, and some just want to win.

The show follows three contestants – each from very different backgrounds – competing for the title of Miss Transgender UK.
