The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer - Documentary Film

Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth aerodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.

History of Helicopters - Helicopter Invention Documentary Film

History of Helicopters - Helicopter Invention Documentary Film A helicopter is a type of rotorcraft where lift and thrust are provided by blades. This allows the helicopter to take off and land up and down, to hover, and to fly forward, in reverse, and laterally. These attributes allow helicopters to be made use of in overloaded or isolated locations where fixed-wing plane and many kinds of VTOL (upright takeoff and landing) plane can not do. The word helicopter is adjusted from the French language helicoptere, created by Gustave Ponton d'Amecourt in 1861, which stems from the Greek helix "helix, spiral, try, convolution" and pteron "wing". English-language nicknames for helicopter include "chopper", "copter", "helo", "heli", and "whirlybird". Some helicopters got to limited manufacturing, but it was not until 1942 that a helicopter created by Igor Sikorsky reached full-blown production, with 131 airplane developed.

But it was Ford who would establish the forty hour working week within his factories and introduce mass production via his moving assembly lines, heralding a new era for industry. The United States embraced the motor car in a big way, and by the mid nineteen sixties, no one walked anywhere anymore. The country that gave us the shopping mall also gave us the parking lot, and drive-through convenience. It seemed like just about
anything could be done in a car, from watching movies to dining to traveling long distance, as with the popularity of the motor car came Motor Inns, also called Motels!
