Review

A brilliant wheeze this week: James May brings together various failed amateur bands for a competition. They gave up their dreams of rock stardom years ago. But now, the slightly greying group that impresses James and his fellow judges the most will get the chance to reunite for one more gig, playing live at the High Voltage festival. It’s the kind of talent show idea that could run and run on, say, ITV4.

It leads to a lovely moment where one of the ageing rockers refers to our host as “Brian May” by mistake. Also included: how to make loo roll, a clever storage solution for allen keys, and James goes on a ghost hunt.

Summary

James May learns how to control his fears by going on a ghost hunt in one of Britain's most haunted castles, and demonstrates his own axe skills by cutting down a tree. A middle-aged rock band who have not played together in more than 20 years reunite to perform at a festival.
