The Crane Gang follows drivers, technicians and management at Ainscough, the biggest mobile crane hire company in Britain.

The show follows a number of key personnel in a make-or-break year for the business, which is involved in countless major construction projects, relocating precious works of art, lifting million pound yachts, carrying enormous wind turbines, and moving derailed trains. From key decisions made by senior management, to the day-to-day problems faced by the team on the ground, The Crane Gang introduces the often larger-than-life characters responsible for some of the most impressive feats of lifting we see in and around our town and cities.

With cameras mounted in and around these giant structures, the series offers a unique perspective on the world of the mobile crane and the driver as they make some of the most technically challenging lifts of their year.

“…unexpectedly absorbing.”
