Crane Currency Paper on TV


I just got a heads-up from the folks who filmed a segment on making United States currency paper for the National Geographic Channel last year. The show, hosted by Marshall Brain, ran three pilot episodes this spring, and because of the tremendous success of the earlier program, they are working on 10 new episodes, with each new episode to include a segment from the first three pilots.

The previous working title of the show was "Who Knew? with Marshall Brain." It has now been officially changed to "Factory Floor with Marshall Brain", and the show will be listed in all television guides under this new name.

The series is set to premiere on Thursday, October 2, at 8 p.m. The first night will feature two episodes back-to-back, and over the following weeks, a new episode of “Factory Floor” will air on Thursdays at 8 p.m. The tentative airdate for the episode featuring Crane is Thursday, October 2 at 9 p.m. This schedule is subject to change, however, so please be sure to check your local television guide for confirmation.

Be sure to tune in. It's fun and informative and you'll actually find out what the heck that thing is at the top of this post. I was there; it blew Marshall away!

At first I thought that thing was some kind of football helmet; then I see the product appears to be cellulose, made from newspaper(?), used for insulation.
