Just got home here and flipping through the channels I see Modern Marvels is doing a show on tobacco. Missed the first 10 minutes, but thought I'd put it out there for anyone else online.

Caught it a few weeks ago. Brought back a lot of memories (from the 50's and 60's!).

Pretty interesting, cool video from the Opus X factory and Cornell and Diehl. Also some interesting information about cigarette manufacturing I didn't know about. Always wondered how they manipulated nicotine levels, but I guess they found a way!

That great big bearded dude puffing away in the intro to the pipe segment is actually Greg Pease with the makeup off lol!

It really was a very well done show.... A friend bought me a copy on DVD and I've already watched it a few times....

Best,
Dock

I saw it for the first time last night (thanks for the heads up Lew!)... I thought it was pretty well done.
