REINVENTING: – A new series in development by FrankTV & Dreamtime Entertainment
In secretive labs around the world, creative geniuses are shaping our future… taking what we know, and turning it upside down. In episode 1, host Erik Lindbergh (grandson of aviation icon Charles Lindbergh) will take viewers to far flung airfields where engineers are building and testing planes powered by electricity. The effort has already cost lives, but if they succeed, air travel will be safer, quieter, and far less polluting.

CONSPIRACY TEST: OKC BOMBING – DISCOVERY CHANNEL
169 people died. A nine story building was destroyed. The FBI says Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols did it with a truck bomb. But a Brigadier General says that’s a cover-up… a single truck bomb couldn’t have brought the building down. To test the General’s theory, we recreate McVeigh’s 5,000 pound bomb and explode it, surrounded by special monitoring equipment. Our bomb generated a magnitude 3 earthquake, and revealed a definitive answer.
