For those of you not familiar with the program, each segment serves as a mini-documentary on the manufacturing process of a product generally known to the public. In this episode viewers will see first hand how a Vespa is produced; from the beginning stages of development where the steel monocoque frame is welded together straight through to the finished product.
Please check the Science Channel’s website and your local listings to see the numerous broadcast times (The Vespa segment is episode 13 of How It’s Made 6).
