    Hey, well just a random topic. I was watching How It's Made on Discovery and they were making Lee Filters.

    Did it show them actually boiling down the horses' hooves?

    See, it's further proof the Canadian's support the arts better then the US.

    How It's Made is produced in Canada.

    Many Discovery Channel (and it's subsidiaries) programs are produced in Canada.

    Seems as though the series was repackaged for the Discovery channels, as all the episode numbers have changed.

    I think a majority of what is on US TV is produced in Canada. Most scifi shows are too

    The discovery network tends to import more then most stations due simply because they have a lot of space to fill and its cheaper to import then to make their own. Mainstream US TV is mostly made in the US, though the concepts for some shows are imported. I don't care what they say, no one in TV anywhere has ever had an original idea.

    Most Sci-Fi programming is shot in Canada, which I found interesting such as Star Gate.

    Part of that might simply be the diversity of open terrain that can be filmed in. How do you cheaply produce a series where you often have to shoot on location in a multitude of different uninhabited places? Go to Canada!
