How It’s Made is a documentary television series that premiered on January 6, 2001, on the Discovery Channel in Canada and the Science Channel in the United States. The show is produced by Productions MAJ, Inc. and Productions MAJ 2 in the Canadian province of Quebec.
The show is, in fact, a documentary that demonstrates how ordinary, everyday objects are manufactured (such as clothes and accessories, food, industrial products, musical instruments, and athletic goods). Restoration of antiquities is also covered in several episodes.
How It’s Made does not have the explanatory texts to make dubbing in other languages easier. The show also does away with an onscreen host (after Season 1 in the Canadian edition) and a staff process interview. A narrator off-screen, on the other hand, recounts the technique, often with hilarious puns.
Each episode features three or four commodities that are broken down into pieces, with each given a five-minute presentation; exceptions are allowed for particularly difficult products due to time constraints.
The scripts are essentially identical in all versions of the show; the only difference in the American version is that the measurement units are expressed in US customary units rather than metric ones. During the US-run, a subtitled conversion was broadcast during the original narration.
Flat, bright forms and a variety of items flipping inside a huge hexagon were part of the original graphic style. The flashing image hexagon is intertwined with text saying ‘HOW I MADE,’ which looks to be a joke, mirroring the show’s title ‘HOW IT’S MADE,’ during a ‘drop’ inside the musical theme during the opening sequence.
The graphical motif was changed in Season 8. It was replaced with a 3D representation of a plant that included high-pressure tanks, valves, pressure meters, welding heads, and piston presses. ‘Inquisitive children and adults will learn from the show, and certain segments may broaden your perspective,’ noted Common Sense Media, awarding the TV show a 4/5 rating.
