This seems like a really weird question, but Tom Scott had it in the back of his mind since childhood. We get a quite detailed explanation why, which involves a bonkers old TV show, and then he has the opportunity to try it himself. The idea of driving while facing backwards was just a weird idea from the show, but can it be done in real life? Sure, as anyone who ever used a backup camera in a modern car will tell you. But Tom does it the hard way, by having a sponsor build him a vehicle in which all driving would be done by watching a video camera instead of the road. And it can go 50 miles an hour. What could possibly go wrong?
