Meet Jack and Liam aka No Smoke, No Poke from The Fast and the Farmer-ish


BBC Three

Jack Hatt (23) and Liam Birnie (21) from England

What these loveable tractor ‘supergeeks’ don’t know about tractors, simply isn’t worth knowing!

A general agricultural contractor based in Hertfordshire, if it has a motor or needs fixing - Jack is your man. He is a lifelong tractor nerd - so much so that his friends have called him Tractor Boy since school.

Jack and Liam have been friends for six years, when they met at agricultural college. Liam has family and family friends who work in farming and from his young teens knew that he wanted to be involved in agriculture. He gave up working on farms a year ago to work with the local tractor dealership and put his encyclopaedic knowledge of tractors to better use. Liam still misses being out in the fields a bit - but now gets to drive the latest and most exciting tractors - and is lucky enough to get paid to do it!


The Fast and the Farmer-ish is an Alleycats production for BBC Northern Ireland and BBC Three made with funding from Northern Ireland Screen. It will air on BBC Three at 9pm on Sunday 1 October and BBC One Northern Ireland at 7.30pm on Friday 6 October. The full series will be available on BBC iPlayer from Sunday 1 October.

The Fast And The Farmer-ish is part of the BBC’s Across the UK plan, moving content away from London to allow the BBC to better reflect, represent and serve all audiences.
