Barton Quarry set to appear on TV

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.
