Synopsis

Documentary about nails, screws, brackets, bolts and glue -- basic construction materials that hold up our world and keep it together. The origin of the nail is traced back to ancient Rome. Greek mathematician Archimedes is credited with inventing the screw. The program also reveals how the inventors of Super Glue accidentally stumbled upon their invention, why Americans love duct tape and how new super-adhesives could make nails and screws go the way of the horse and buggy.
