Here’s wishing everyone a Happy Ganesh Chaturthi/Vinayaka Chavithi. Enjoy the Festival, the Festivities and of course, the Food
This brand new ten-part series exposes some little-known facts behind everyday items. Wacky industrial scientists Richard Ambrose and Johnny Philips’ insatiable quest for knowledge leads them to various hands-on tests like slicing open plasma TVs, making steel, and testing wallpaper paste by gluing themselves to a wall. From airbags to teabags, toothpaste to tea, each 30-minute episode is a mind-blowing cavalcade of crazy demonstrations and rarely-heard info about everyday stuff.[Link]
Makes me realize, how mundane life has become w.r.t the kind of stuff I watch on the Telly: movies, songs, sports, general entertainment stuff etc. When there are so much other programmes that are educational, inspiring and interesting at the same time. Channels such as Nat Geo, Discovery, Animal Planet, History etc have so much of interesting content but I (we?) rarely watch’em and thus miss some very good stuff.
I’ve now added these channels into my favourites on my TV (replacing Star+, SetMax, Sony & Zee ) and hope to catch some great programmes on them. Do you see these channels often? Care to recommend few good programmes?
