The WMV version I uploaded should play on any computer with Windows Media player 9 or newer.
or go to http://www.videolan.org/
and download their video player that plays practically everything on any system you can think of.
Besides the 500MB version posted by Jtice (thanks) that is a bit too compressed and has very low level audio, is there a place where we can download a HD version? Do they sell the show's Hd-Dvd or Bluray?
Surprised to see this thread still active. A few weeks ago, I received a copy from the production company! ( ) Haven't watched it yet, as saw it first courtesy of John, ( ) and subsequently on a DVD a friend from EDCF recorded and sent me.
So much for not being able to find my happy a** with both hands and a flashlight! (Do not look into Tank Searchlight with remaining eye!)
That's great that the prod co was thoughtful enough to send a copy to you guys!
Good people need to be there for each other. It's the only way to stay sane in a sometimes insane world.
VLC media player 0.8.6c, VideoLAN Security Advisory 0702
VLC media player versions 0.8.6b and lower suffer from a security vulnerability in the CDDA, Vorbis, Theora and SAP plugins. More technical details are available in our advisory.
An updated release of VLC is available which includes a few other fixes as well. The full list of changes can be found here. (see above website)
We strongly recommend all users to update to this new version.
Still an interesting thread here.
Can't wait for " The Sequel " !
If it ain't bright, It ain't right!
Great show. I'm rather sorry they didn't show us more of what happened at the barbecue.
I never got a DVD.
Quando Omni Flunkis Moritati

They just aired this show again on national geographic HD on Saturday night. I dvr-ed. So far I have only had time to skim through it but I did stop when I saw Mag's being modded and a short bit with Jim Hodges, whose handle I don't know. Cool, I can't wait to watch it all I didn't realize it was such an old progam though.
If possible, please let us know sometime
before it is scheduled to be shown again.
Really wish there was an HD version available.

I remember seeing this program a couple of times back when it was first released, unfortunately National Geographic doesn't seem to air it anymore, as I'm always keeping an eye out for it to no avail. I have been trying to locate it online to view for quite sometime now but I unfortunately can't find it anywhere, and I don't believe that national geographic offers the DVD for sale. Does anyone know where I can view the episode at?
In regards to what other's have said throughout this thread, the show certainly did have it's shortcomings, however, in light of that, I was still thankful that a TV show was produced to showcase the history behind flashlights, nobody else has ever done so before. As stated many times throughout this thread, I was quite shocked to hear Mr. George Craford, who according to the program, has been studying LED's for more than 30 years, make such a claim as to LED's not generating any heat, even the most casual and new to the hobby flashaholic know's that is completely false. A quick google search brings up many different pages on Mr. Craford and his "expertise" in LED's, he can be seen in this video clip at 2 minutes 45 seconds here. The wealth of information on him in regards to lumileds and the technology advancing makes me scratch my head even more as to why he gave the information he did
But regardless of that, if someone could please point me in the right direction so that I can view this program again, it would be greatly appreciated.
At the time certain members distributed copies, I would have to go searching for mine, perhaps a member who is better at filing than me could help you out.
I'm pretty sure I still have a copy.
Ebow86, PM me your address and I'll make a copy and send it to you.
Sounds like someone should upload it somewhere, Youtube?
