Site to feature in Cbeebies science and engineering programme showing children how concrete is made

HANSON’s Barton Quarry and concrete plant, in Staffordshire, is to feature in a children’s TV programme showing how concrete is made.

A production team visited the site to put together a short film for the second series of Do You Know?, a science and engineering programme for CBeebies which looks at how everyday things work.

The programme’s presenter, Maddie Moate (pictured), followed the process from quarry to lorry via the on-site concrete batching plant and watched the finished product being delivered to a nearby construction site.

The seven-minute programme will be broadcast in the autumn on CBeebies, the BBC television network for children aimed at encouraging learning through play.
