The 10 best hacking videos
The Secret Life of Machines episodes are available to download, but “The Car” has a long section of bad video. Doesn’t matter where you download it, it’s a bad copy. :-( Why it’s bad is because the online ones were made from the DVD set which was made from tape transfers from the original 16mm film prints and whomever did the DVD transfer didn’t check their work. Something went worng with the digitization of “The Car”. There’s only two ways to fix it. Find a good home recorded tape of the episode and digitize it or buy the original film prints and have new digital transfers made direct from them for higher quality than the DVDs that were made. Crowdfunding could buy the films and pay to have them digitized and DVDs authored and replicated.
