Good TV

"The Secret Life of Machines" which ran from 1988 to 1994 was probably the greatest TV program ever to air anywhere in the world.  Tim Hunkin and Rex Garrod make radio, internal combustion, photocopying, VCRs and all sorts of other mysterious machines seem friendly and downright cute.  Through animation and kooky contraptions they show you the viewer how anyone could make a Xerox machine right at home!

What does this have to do with reuse you ask?  EVERYTHING!  Now you can throw out your fax machine and build one yourself out of trash!  Seriously, watch these shows, learn how to create electromechanical, animatronic installation art out of your old vacuum cleaner and never throw anything away again.  Seriously.
