CRASH TEST DUMMIES: A Smashing History
PRODUCER / DIRECTOR
1 x 60 BBC4 / SMITHSONIAN CHANNEL
Engineer Jem Stansfield takes a quirky sideways look at a science icon exploring how
the 65 years of dummy evolution has mirrored car safety improvements.
We meet a whole range of
dummies, past and present and get under their skin to discover what makes them tick. Shot in crash
labs in Sweden, US & UK we discover the engineering innovations that keep us safe on the road.
A heady mix of archive, high-speed crash footage, survivor testimony and quirky dummy antics guaranteed to make you smile, laugh, gasp and wince all at once! (HD)
