Megafactories, Toyota Australia is a compelling one-hour documentary that uncovers the history, technology and innovation of one of the biggest car manufacturing companies on the planet.

It follows the challenges of gutting an ageing plant and rebuilding it from the ground up to make way for local hybrid engine production. From an army of robots, monster machines and a skilled workforce we reveal just what it takes to create the modern day car.

WTFN was chosen to produce the first Australian made episode of the highly successful Megafactories series for National Geographic Channel.

The production team was given unprecedented access to Toyota Australia’s vast Melbourne manufacturing headquarters, where seven massive plants make up this super-productive Megafactory. Also the film crew travelled to Japan to trace how a humble weaving loom played a pivotal role in the birth of the car manufacturing giant.

First broadcast 8 April 2013.
