Ultimate Factories on NGC

Has anyone seen the "Ultimate Factories" series on the national geographic channel?

The premise of the show is that they visit the factories, highlight the company, its history and show the manufacturing process of their current product. My favorite by far has been Ferrari with the production of the 599GTB and secondly Harley Davidson with the production of the VROD. Re-airs of these two shows will be on wednesday, February 7th from 8-10pm. I encourage everyone to watch and/or tape them if you haven't already seen them.

After seeing that short german discovery channel video at http://mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=6216, I can't help but think MV Agusta should ask NGC to do a show on them. This would not only be great for current fans of the brand, but it would also provide exposure and be a great marketing tool for educating people not familiar with the brand (especially the current generation). This should create more interest in their current product line, and would be an additional form of marketing for MV Agusta at hopefully no cost to the company.

What do you guys think?
How can we encourage MV Agusta to persue this?

That sounds like a great idea. We can also send them a link of that german discovery channel video to give them a sneak peak and promote the idea.

I hope others here post there opinion. Lets see what they think is best.

As a reminder guys, if you haven't seen the show, you should tape the Ferrari episode tonight followed by Harley Davidson....on wednesday, February 7th from 8-10pm on NGC (national geographic channel).

You won't be dissapointed.

The Ferrari episode is the best IMO.

sgcullen, have you seen it?
