Tools of the Trade

Show Summary

Tools of the Trade from National Geographic is a documentary series that explores what tools it takes to get the job done in various exciting professions. Everyone knows what sort of tasks law enforcement officers or firefighters handle every day, but what about the equipment that helps them on some of the world's toughest jobs? This series explores the science behind the tools, demonstrating how they work, why they were developed, and what the future might bring to their arsenals. Follow along with a S.W.A.T. team as they employ everything from tazers and riot shields to tear gas and high-powered rifles. Find out what it takes to be a demolitions expert and if it takes more than a few sticks of dynamite to take down enormous structures. Whether the jobs are big or small, it takes expertise, training, and tools to overcome even the most dangerous tasks. National Geographic brings the science and the power of tools to life in Tools of the Trade.moreless
