This interesting series offers fun details about the history of, and the science and technology behind, a wide range of products associated with the American way of life. Each of the items are made in the United States by companies whose legacies goes back to small, often family-run, businesses, which is a source of pride for the owners and employees who are responsible for making them. Meanwhile, viewers get to watch different phases of the manufacturing process, and learn a little bit more about what makes the product unique. If you're a history buff, or like to learn more about how things are made, Extraordinary Stories Behind Everyday Things is worth watching.
