National Geographic: Treasures from the Past
Within a technology-crazed world, not everything that is fast and sleek is better. For those who believe that a "blast from the past" is preferable to today's pre-fab world, then this video from National Geographic is the one to see. Watch as skilled hands restore priceless relics to their original splendor. Everything from a WWI bi-plane to a Colorado turn-of-the-century carousel made in 1905 return to their glorious beginnings. This educational tape also includes the reparation of a Scottish tall ship from 1877 and a 1920 Duesenberg automobile, but perhaps the highlight is the complete renovation of Catherine's Palace. Destroyed by Nazi Germany during the siege of Leningrad, watch as an army of volunteers reconstructs this wonder to its original beauty. ~ C. Dwayne Smith, Rovi
