You Have Been Warned - Series 2

Postby air.command » Tue Oct 29, 2013 2:16 pm

December last year I was contacted by October Films in the UK working on a Discovery Channel show called "You have been warned - Series 2" about using one of our YouTube clips. Over the last few months they have asked many technical questions as I think they will have a presenter describing how our 2-stage water rocket works. I've also sent them copies of the clip without any of the text overlays, as I believe they want to add their own.

I don't know how the final presentation/clip will look, so it should be interesting. I recently received a tentative date for when the episode should air in Oz.

Episode 11: Backyard Boffins (provisional date 30 Dec 2013)

The show currently I believe is up to Episode 4 or 5 so it is still some time off.

In Australia: http://www.discoverychannel.com.au/shows/you-have-been-warned/
On Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DiscoveryYHBW
UK: http://www.discoveryuk.com/web/you-have-been-warned/episodes/

I believee the show is also called "Outrageous Acts of science" in the US, but I am not sure it is the same content or not.

Should be fun :)

Cool stuff George!
Great to be indirectly promoting water rocketry with these things.

Level 1 cert: Ok... so maybe I was a little optimistic putting this in. But if I do do it, then it'll be something fast.
