A perfect pilot episode for a kid's TV show, "Rescue" introduces us to Brum for the first time, and the simple 10 minute structure of each episode where his inquistivity leads him on adventures in the Big Town (Birmingham, UK, where the bulk of the episodes are filmed) that will always end where they begin, the motor museum in Bourton on the water, Gloucestershire where he lives.
