From a media release:
As the saying goes: â€œone manâ€™s trash is another manâ€™s treasure.â€ This old adage rings true for Discoveryâ€™s newest original Canadian seriesÂ MADE BY DESTRUCTION, airing back-to-back episodes onÂ Mondays at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. ET beginning July 4.Â Produced for Discovery Canada byÂ yap films, and in association withÂ ScienceÂ U.S., the unique series gives viewers the inside scoop on how everyday objects are pulled from the trash, destroyed, transformed by technology, and reborn into new and useable items, exclusively on Discovery.
MADE BY DESTRCUTIONÂ reveals the step-by-step process of how commonplace and often dismissed objects are used to create new, useable products in factories all around the world by using innovative technology and inventive design. The series showcases how everyday objects are destroyed and re-manufactured, proving a productâ€™s origin can be just as exciting and interesting as the item itself.
In the first episode, discarded photocopiers are shredded, their copper combined with a dash of zinc, before they are sent to a nearby foundry to be melted into brass. The brass is then heated, melted, and shaped into one of the most iconic musical instruments in the world: the trumpet.
