In an age of multi-channel choice and on demand programmes, why is there nothing worthwhile watching on the box? That's the question many viewers ask.
There is one channel worth switching to, though, and that's Pilkington TV.
Available via You Tube, Pilkington TV provides a substantial video resource, from footage of the float and rolled glass manufacturing processes to the latest product developments for specifiers.
As well as clips from television programmes where Pilkington or its products has featured, visual explanations are given of how Pilkington Activ™ self-cleaning glass works and the noise control performance of Pilkington Optiphon™.
A memorable highlight is a Pilkington Planar™ structural glazing assembly that remained intact after a Mini Cooper - complete with engine - was dropped on it. This successful demonstration left Top Gear presenter James May five pounds out of pocket.
There is also a fascinating stage-by-stage video account of the construction of 'The Step into the Void' attraction in the Mont Blanc Massif mountain range, a kilometre above the Chamonix Valley.
As well as enhancing product knowledge training courses, video clips from Pilkington TV can be included in presentations to customers and architects.
Next time you find yourself bored when channel surfing….tune in to Pilkington TV instead!
