We Are England "A Very British Bike Factory - West London" 5 September 2022: Monday on BBC One 11

With a unique product, legions of fans, and deep roots in the communities of west London, Brompton Bikes is the largest bike manufacturer in the UK. In this film, we see what life is like on the factory floor amid unprecedented demand for the folding bikes. A pandemic-driven surge in the popularity of cycling has led the company to recruit hundreds of new workers in the past year. It is now training them in everything from engineering to the dying art of ‘brazing’, a specialised form of welding.
