The Deadly Fuze was an example of a documentary made by some independent
producers and sold to PBS. That's why it's superior to the usual, even
for PBS, which usually has documentaries superior to cable channels.
I've found British documentaries the best of all for technical detail.
One that I saw about helicopters gave a very complete and lucid
description of the rotor mechanism. I remember thinking that an
American documentary would never go into such detail.
