Klepper Folding Kayaks will be featured in the TV show How It's Made! The first time the crew filmed a folding kayak and they FELL IN LOVE :-)

*in Canada on Discovery Channel, How It's Made, Friday June 3rd at 8:00PM ET
*in the USA on the Science Channel, How It's Made, Friday, April 29th at 9:00pm ET
*La date de diffusion pour la version française à Ztélé sera probablement seulement au début 2012.

The filming in Germany at the factory was done in mid-October 2010. How It's Made is a TV show about... how things are made, so the whole process of making a Klepper is described on film. Absolutely fabulous!

Attached is a photo of the filming for the introductory segment. We were at the Rio Tinto Alcan Factory South of Montreal. It was surreal to see the Klepper Aerius Scout hanging in the air with all the smoke and manufacturing gear in the background. After hours of set-up and filming, the producer said it was one of the nicest 'objects' they had ever filmed. Of course, it's a Klepper :-)

Can you tell us the series number and episode number? I'd like to watch out for the British broadcast, but I haven't been able to find it.

Thanks,
Mary

And of course it should be possible to buy a DVD of the "show" after it has been seen." An other must get."

We also can't wait :wink:

Mary, we've asked the producers of 'How It's Made' for the episode number... and will share as soon as we get news.

Spring is finally here! Get those folding bags out and ready... :D

Thanks for that - sorry for not replying sooner. As far as I can find out, we in Europe are still on series 14, so I've got a while to wait.

Mary
