Did anyone happen to catch the special on safety tonight?  I'm not sure 
what channel it was on.  Our cable system just got some new channels and 
this was one of them.

Anyway, they discussed safety testing in cars in the early '70's.  They 
had a '72 MG-BGT rigged with automatic ride control, anti-lock brakes, 
and dual air bags.  They also had some side impact protection that was 
well ahead of its time.  Not to mention a speed readout that reflected 
onto the windscreen.  I caught only a breif portion of the show, but it 
was very interesting.

I'll look at our local listings and get more information about the show. 
It's well worth watching.  I'll post a message if it is scheduled to 
show again.
