    I was just now looking for this in the schedule to tape it, and I guess it's UK only because I can't find it.

    Maybe later!

    I was going to record the show but it isn't listed on my Direct TV guide either.

    That Nat-Geo "Mega-Factories" episode aired earlier this year. (May?)
    Some people here had posted links to all segments that were posted on YouTube
    Maybe search both here and there and you wont have to wait until Dec 1

    I actually purchased the "Ultimate Factories: Chevy Volt" DVD from the natgeo online store, I think this is the US version?

    I added the above post to the FAQ. Great stuff!

    Ron Mantinan makes an appearance in the beginning of part 3. He's the engineer who accompanied me on my test drive during the Raleigh event on Nov 2nd, and generously got me a second ride because I'd forgotten to test Sport mode. Thanks again Rob!

    Now let's light this candle.
