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)
