Lockdown TV

By Blair Connell | Remapping

Apr 27

Run out of stuff to watch?

Here’s some ideas to get you through the lockdown.

1 – Dplay – Free

This is a TV on demand Service. You can download the app , watch on your smart TV,  or stream on your PC.

Choose from the following: 

Goblin Works Garage

Salvage Hunters – Classic Cars

Wheeler Dealers


Bitchin Rides

Fast n Loud

2- Netflix – monthly subscription

Here’s a few films and series that we can recommend.


Initial D – driving and drifting classic

Rush – James Hunt and Niki Lauda biopic

Uppity – Willy T Ribbs story. The first black driver in NASCAR.

Shelby – Carroll Shelby documentary.

Series :

Fastest Car – drag race stuff. 

If you watch the first 10 minutes and the last 10 minutes of each show then it’s way better- the middle bit can be tedious. 

Formula 1  – Drive to Survive

Formula 1 can be boring, this is not. Plenty of drama on and off the track. A well made series. 

Car Masters

US series – modifying and flipping cars.

Rust Valley Restorers

US series – restoration show.

3 – Youtube – free

Here’s a few channels we like :

JayEmm on Cars – real world reviews on normal British roads


Behind the Glass – podcast style banter with Sam and Tony –  Entertaining


Stav – Tech

No-nonsense modding, turbo talk and project builds. Gonzo but good.



The reviews from previous years make for interesting viewing – especially if you’re looking to buy a decent used car.


Chris Harris on Cars

Decent content and good quality . Lockdown escapism


Harrys Garage

Old school and new school reviews etc from Harry Metcalfe – the founder of EVO magazine.


4- SKY

Wheeler dealers

Fast and loud

Super truckers

Kindig customs

Texas metal

Dirty mother truckers

Diesel Bros


5 – Motortrend – 2 weeks free trial then £6 /month

Like Netflix , but for car guys. From the USA. 

The two week free trial is very handy for the lockdown.


Engine Masters

Street Outlaws

Battle for Daytona

Bitchin Boot Camp

Iron resurrection

Hot Wheels life-size

Texas metal

Dirt every day

Put up or shut up

Diesel brothers

Dirty muddertruckers

Petrol head planet

Epic drives
