George Washington lives!
Or so it would seem. THE HISTORY CHANNEL™ presents a truly remarkable, one-of-a-kind effort to exactly reproduce the Father of His Country’s dimensions and appearance.
Using advanced forensics, 3-D laser-scanning and Hollywood-quality special effects, scholars endeavored for three years to precisely reproduce George Washington’s physical presence. In this fascinating program, follow this painstaking process, from research to fabrication, and along the way gain an entirely new perspective on the life and times of the fascinating man.
Like two TV shows in one, THE SEARCH FOR GEORGE WASHINGTON combines compelling historical explorations with a hands-on, step-by-step demonstration of the process and technology involved in creating lifelike reproductions of figures from the past.
You may think you know what Washington looks like – after all, his image is everywhere, from the quarter in your pocket to Mt. Rushmore – but you have never seen him like this.
