    I saw the update today too. The series on NGC is called "Man-Made", although I don't see it as one of the catagories. I'm going to give it some more time to appear in the schedule before I contact the production company again.

    Is it possible that flashlights are just a small segment in the upcomming episode of "Man-Man: The Can", produced by Winton/duPont Films and airing on May 15? After all, most flashlights are nothing more than very fancy alluminum cans.

    Winton/duPont films does not seem to have produced a lot of stuff, so it seems unlikely that they would have more than one National Geographic show airing in the same year, much less the same month.

    EDIT

    My bad. I didn't look at the date closely enough. "The Can" aired in March 15, not May 15.

    Jim, at least you confirmed they have a Man-Made catagory. Your typo of "man-man: the can" sounds like a bad dvd title from the adult section of Blockbuster.

    Sasha, as this thread can be easily overlooked by interested CPFers, would it be possible to post a balloon on the main page like we do for raffle announcements?

    My initial post was eastern time. You may want to check with your local provider to be sure it matches the NGC schedule.

    Pacific Time:
    Thursday, May 31st, 5pm and 8pm ---and--- Saturday, June 2nd, 11am

    Eastern Time:
    Thursday, May 31st, 8pm and 11pm ---and--- Saturday, June 2nd, 2pm



    Jonathan, is the 11am Saturday time going to work for the BBQ/viewing? I assume you get NGC on your cable.

    Oh this is way cool. Way to go getting in on this program.

    I was like what does NCC mean...then realized it was supposed to be NGC. I love that channel, always watching Dog Whisperer and nature shows, and will have it on TIVO. I always backup my TIVO to DVD. I have a 250GB HD so mine holds about 220 hours of programming.

    Anyone who needs either a SVCD or DVD who isn't getting one can PM me.

    We've been waiting 6 months for this so 2 more weeks seems close to me.

    Originally our segment was 2 minutes. Last I heard it was changed to about 5 minutes, but don't quote me on it.

    The HID igniting the newspaper is a dramatic eye opener for the non flashaholic, so I have no doubt that scene will be included. I'm also certain that TVODRD's tank searchlight will be a major player.

    I hope I can convince my parents to get this channel! Not just for this though, I always liked watching NGC at my friend's house and etc. Otherwise, I hope someone can send me a DVD. CPF's goin' on national TV! Woo-hoo!

    I'll bet we get a lot of "Server Busy" errors for a few days after the show airs. Knowing why will make me not mind.

    Who is offering record the show? I don't have NGC. I'm willing to pay for the DVD/labor/shipping.

    Would never have known about this if not for the new banner! This is too cool!

    I'll be telling many people to watch the show.

    BBQ? CPF on TV? I am so there!

    I have a DVD burner (as well as too much free time), so I could help make copies if necessary.
