HOW DID THEY FIX THAT - Impossible Repairs is a fast-paced documentary series that takes viewers behind-the-scenes of the world’s biggest and most complicated machines, to explore the dirtiest jobs and the most remarkable missions of hardhat heroes from across the globe. Filmmaker, World Traveler and Series Host Mike Davidson is the ultimate insider, exploring the seemingly impenetrable and inaccessible areas of the mechanical world, while following people who are constantly problem solving and confronting challenges big and small, to overcome the most difficult repairs imaginable.

On Impossible Repairs, massive machines and complicated operations are at the forefront of every episode, as Mike embeds himself with the crews responsible for dealing with the daily dangers that lurk around every corner on the rails, in the air, and out on the water. Small complications can turn into major issues in a heartbeat, so the amazing pilots, drivers, engineers, and mechanics who Mike follows are under constant pressure to seek out the bad even when everything seems to be going well. Mike is there as crews dig into the guts and bolts of these beast-like machines, to keep them running, get the job done, and finish the mission. As a filmmaker and storyteller, Mike’s instincts and knowledge within these environments is unparalleled. And now he’s ready to go back in, in search of the world’s most...Impossible Repairs.
