Elevators move millions of passengers every day. In TRAPPED IN AN ELEVATOR, NOVA reveals the secret life of these ubiquitous machines. Once brawny but simple machines, elevators are getting a brainy makeover. Computer controls are getting passengers to their destinations faster and more safely than ever before. But will the elevator-wary be comfortable handing over the reins to computers?

Very interesting with profound details!

Comments about PBS NOVA: Trapped in an Elevator DVD:

I was doubt to buy this the first place as I was wondering what would be the content...a horror film? I eventually bought it and found a very interesting show about elevators - machines that we take for granted everyday. It gave me a totally different views and insights on how this thing practically work and where it will be heading to. The 41 hours stuck story of Nick White was demonstrating human error is always the major cause of so many incidents of the world. Fantastic & highly recommended.

I had seen this on Nova then got it for my husband and we enjoyed watching it this past week. Everything was done so well, but we felt sorry for the guy who was trapped in the elevator for 41 hours!

Great show for various professions

Comments about PBS NOVA: Trapped in an Elevator DVD:

I am a Director of Security and came across this show one night. I think this is a great show over all for tenants of a residential and/or commercial building, security staff, porters/ maintenance staff and building managers. It was very interesting to see all phases of construction and testing and inspections.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Trapped in an Elevator DVD:

Very interesting program about elevators-they are used every day and thought about very little. When I started to watch the show, I didn't know what they could say for a full hour, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the subject matter was fascinating.

An excellent presentation by Nova

Comments about PBS NOVA: Trapped in an Elevator DVD:

This presentation crammed a lot of history and facts in just a one hour show. It served to keep the viewers interest throughout the entire DVD. I wonder if they considered expanding NOVA to a two hour time slot.
