How Do They Do It?

10 Seasons

Season 3
3.5 out of 5 stars (2) IMDb 7.4/10

Each story in this series takes us behind the scenes to show how to do the things, and make the things that form the modern world. Each episode reveals the hidden story behind another familiar part of our lives. We rarely consider many of the objects which make up the modern world - elevators, stockings, underground railways, football boots, ballistic missiles, carpets, helicopters, breast implants, street lights, submarines, bricks, machine guns, supermarket trolleys. But apparently simple things are often the products of the most extraordinary, highly scientific engineering processes.

An interesting documentary. I bought it because my work, Mittal Steel, was in it. Cool to see how it's done.

This episode does NOT include "Stretched Limos". It shows Making Cowboy Hats, Deep Sea Diving, and Inflight Catering, in that order. Disappointing to pay for video that is incorrectly labeled.
