I was recently made aware of a new documentary film, ‘Ropewalk‘, the Story of Rope. According to the email about it (in the yahoogroups space-elevator email group) and the website itself, this is a story of rope, from early times all the way to possible future uses (including a Space Elevator).
The site has a trailer in which looks very interesting (if you’re into these kinds of things, like I am).
You can buy the video from the website or you can rent it from Netflix.
As a ‘child of the 60’s’, I especially enjoyed the ‘Hemp for Victory’ portion of the trailer…
