James May's Man Lab, Series 2 Episode 1 of 5

Duration: 59 minutes

James May returns for another action-packed series, as he continues his epic quest to re-skill the modern male.

A handcuffed James and Oz Clarke break out of Dartmoor prison and must navigate their way across the treacherous moors, with a team of trackers in hot pursuit and just an Ordnance Survey map and a compass to help them. James also builds a genuine slate-bed pool table, turns his hand to portrait painting and squares up to one of the most terrifying scenarios the modern male can face: how to remember people's names at a party.
