In 2013 Lego became the most profitable toy maker in the world. Now this notoriously secretive, privately-owned superbrand is opening its doors. This documentary reveals what makes Lego tick, meeting some of its key people and revealing more about the company DNA than ever before. The Secret World of Lego follows Justin, a 23-year-old design student, as he travels to Lego headquarters in Denmark in pursuit of one of the most hotly contested jobs in the world, as a Lego set designer. The programme also meets Liverpudlian Matthew, who undertook the same process and has now risen to become a Vice President of Design; and Mark and Tom, two adult fans of Lego, as they try two different money-making schemes they hope will transform their love of the brick into cash. And there’s Roar, the Lego ‘reputation manager’, who guides viewers through this secret world, until the programme gets a little too close for comfort.
