Bumping this 2011 thread for any (like me) that may have missed it. The links to the old tv programs make for good watching.

Just stumbled across this thread.  That was one of my favorite shows.  It was on The Learning Channel, a cable station acquired by Discovery.  You Tube carries episodes of the series.  I especially liked the ones on tape recording and fax transmission.  That series and James Burke's Connections were great television.
