High Tech Monorails is a documentary I edited for my friend Rob Kelly. Â It’s airing on Travel Channel and Travel HD several times this month starting Sunday at 7pm PST. Â Set your TiVo and be sure watch it!
The show covers several of the world’s best monorails including the Schwebebahn in Wuppertal Germany, which was built over 100 years ago. Â It also takes you to China aboard the 1.2 billion dollar mag lev that reaches 270 mph, and to Las Vegas where a monorail was built to connect the back side of the strip’s casinos. Â And the film talks about how Los Angeles was offered a free monorail in the 60’s but turned it down due to pressure from the oil companies. Â And it asks the question “why aren’t we using these technologies more today.” Â All egos aside, it’s a delightful way to spend an hour. Â I hope everyone gets a chance to check it out.

Ok! Â So I’m including this next section to tease Rob a little, plus having edited the show, this is one of the oddest things I’ve seen all week…
I figured there was probably a clip of the show on youtube because there’s a clip of everything on youtube. Â I searched youtube for High Tech Monorails and I found this golden little gem of a clip:
I can’t wrap my head around this but it’s a show about japanese people watching High Tech Monorails. Hmmm.
ANYWAYS! Â For a REAL clip you can go to hightechmonorails.com
