How It’s Made

I’m not an avid television viewer, but a few months ago I stumbled upon an awesome show on Discovery Channel: How It’s Made. It’s a half-hour show with three or four brief segments on how various items are produced. There is no theme; the other day I caught an episode that covered amplifiers, footballs, marbles, and airplane wings. Most of the stuff is assembly line (which fascinates me, especially the complex automated stuff), but I’ve also seen segments on recycling, hydroponic lettuce, and chickens. If you’ve ever wondered how commonplace objects are manufactured – or if you haven’t but, like me, you have a short attention span and a soft spot for documentaries – check this show out. It’s on several times a week and since the segments are brief and unrelated, there’s no serious time commitment.
