Bombardier (Episode #104H)

KQED 9: Wed, Oct 21, 2015 -- 11:00 PM

Short-range regional jets are the backbone of domestic air travel. To withstand a high volume of flights, these jets must be comfortable, durable and fuel efficient, like the Bombardier CRJ-1000. Glass, titanium, fiberglass, lacquer and aluminum alloy each transcend their original states, harnessed to create a modern cutting-edge machine.

Komatsu (Episode #101H)

KQED Life: Fri, Oct 16, 2015 -- 8:00 PM

To extract precious metals found beneath the earth requires a massive 232-ton, two-story-tall dump truck with a load capacity of 320 tons - a giant earth-mover like the Komatsu 930-E. This amazing engineering achievement is made possible by five essential raw ingredients: coal, chromium, mineral oil, latex rubber and sulphuric acid, an electron superhighway that generates massive power.

Bentley (Episode #102H)

KQED 9: Wed, Oct 14, 2015 -- 11:00 PM

It's a century-old obsession to find the right raw materials to build a car that is fit for both king and race car driver - perfectly luxurious and perfectly fast. The Bentley Motor Company has built common raw ingredients into their signature Mulsanne, an engineering achievement made possible by aluminum, leather, iron, wood and pigment.
