The Science Channel to broadcast FIRST documentary

This note, pasted below, was just sent to team leaders from FIRST:

---------------------------------------

Greetings Teams:

FIRST Robotics Documentary Airs on The Science Channel

Watch the world premiere of "FIRST Robotics 2003" Friday, September 12 at 9pm on The Science Channel. This original documentary was developed, produced, filmed and aired as a contribution to FIRST through the sponsorship of Discovery. The Science Channel team responsible for bringing this effort together has been involved with FIRST for several years, and their personal and professional efforts have made their dream of
promoting FIRST in a significant way a reality. The documentary includes coverage of FIRST teams across the country, of regional events in New York City and San Jose, California, and of the Championship.

The program will be repeated on Tuesday, September 17 and again on Friday, November 21. The Science Channel is available on digital cable or satellite. You can call your provider today and ask for The Science Channel, or go to discovery.com and click on The Science Channel. You can also see the schedule by going to:
http://science.discovery.com/schedul...88&channel=SCI

Through this documentary, Discovery makes the case that FIRST Robotics is the Super Bowl of engineering -- requiring teamwork, dedication and ingenuity. 20,000 of America's brightest high school science students achieve breakthroughs, set the groundwork for brilliant careers, and make extremely cool robots. In this Science Channel original special, the program follows three diverse teams from the team building and robot
building phase, through regional competitions and to the Championship event at the Reliant Arena in Houston, TX. Special thanks for their support of this television project go to FIRST Robotics Teams #254, #339, and #1224.

That's totally awesome. I checked and I do have that channel so I will definitely be watching. I'll send news of this to my team.

Also, for everyone don't forget about www.tvguide.com as the airing times may be slightly different in your area

Hey Andy, i just read the email from FIRST and was going to post about it but i see you beat me to it. Actually while volunteering at the nats this past year, i heard about and got to talk to some of the Science Chanels guys, it sounded awesome then and i cant wait to see it in a few weeks. Everyone who gets the chance i would reccomend watching this, its going to be great!

So now, since a lot of us are at college and don't get the science channel or some people don't get it at home.. Does anyone plan on recording this and then digitizing it, like was done with the first Dean Kamen special on 60 minutes?

Don't worry Rob, I'm sure SOMEONE will send a copy up to Potsdam.

We'll see it eventually.

And John, Iíll be giving Rob a copy at some point(probably at Bash) so if youíre really nice to him maybe heíll let you watch it

Is this a one-hour documentary, or a series of shows? The description isn't very clear.

I'm not getting on any soapbox here, I don't mind people sharing music & movies, but in this case I would recommend everyone actually buy the DVD when the show airs, that's what I plan on doing. Go ahead and get a copy of the digitized version, but if you like it order a copy from Discovery. The simple reason is to encourage them to produce more FIRST related shows. Tell them with your money that you want to see FIRST on TV. I imagine that if they get several thousand orders for the DVD they'll be more inclined to make a similar program this season.

We're finally on TV, now lets let them know that we want to be back next year (but on a channel that people actually get).

Mike

I knew having 12 Discovery Channels would come in handy one of these days.

Would you happen to know if this is something that they will sell online after the show too? Or available only when it is aired?
I know I would deffinately buy a copy. Thanks for any info!

This looks like a great idea, and a lot of fun to watch. I know a lot of the HS kids (hey, most of us mentors too) like watching for our teams.

It's great that this is an actual documentary and not just a 10-second spotlight on one of Dean's many interviews (like 60 Minutes II and such), and I'm sure he's happy about it too.

Anyone in the Indianapolis area want to watch? I vote a FIRST party at Chris Noble's... or maybe Andy Baker's?
