Have you ever wondered how everyday objects that we use are made? Or what sparked off the invention of a razor and needles? The new season of ‘How It’s Made’ takes viewers behind the scenes to reveal the ins and outs of manufacturing of these everyday items. The series premieres on Discovery Science every night at 8 PM starting July 1, 2012.
There are many incredible things in this world that one takes for granted and all the mundane items have a fascinating story behind them. ‘How It’s Made’, through its 13-part series, unravels stories behind ordinary things by visiting workshops and factories, witnessing the technology that turns raw materials into finished products right before your very eyes.
The show explores everything from car doors and water beds to surgical instruments and kitchen accessories.
