"How Do They Do That?" was a song by the Mexican band Kinky on their album Reina.

How Do They Do That? is a British television show, produced by Telepictures and Reg Grundy Productions in and broadcast on BBC1 from 25 January 1994 to 23 April 1997. Originally presented by Jenny Hull and Des Lynam, it explored feats of engineering, organization, and special effects. Each season opened with a stunt apparently performed by one of the presenters, such as a skydiver crash-landing into the studio, a car chase, or the entire studio being washed away.

After two series, Eamonn Holmes took over as male presenter, and from Series 5, was joined by Esther McVey. At its height, How Do They Do That? had 12 million viewers watching on Wednesday nights.
