Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the brisk pace of this documentary-style series (each 30-minute episode covers three different factories) makes it a great choice to share with grade-schoolers -- or any other viewers with short attention spans for educational programming. Factory tours and easy-to-understand explanations of the manufacturing process are both informative and entertaining. Kids will be especially intrigued by episodes that highlight products they're familiar with -- like Necco candies or Crayola crayons. Viewers of all ages are likely to gain a new respect for the hard work, ingenuity, and craftsmanship that allow the featured factories to turn out their products.

Sexual Content

Violence

Social Behavior

Celebrates the ingenuity and strong work ethic of the American manufacturing industry.

Consumerism

The featured companies (Gibson Guitars, Harley-Davidson, Campbell's, Airstream, Titleist, Brooks Brothers, Hallmark, Serta, etc.) get lots of publicity, but not really in a commercial way -- instead, the focus is always on the quality and craftsmanship of the products shown.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Occasionally the series highlights beer manufacturers like Anheuser-Busch.
