    Ben Franklin's Balloons — Nova
    http://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365350513/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false

    The first stage in the adventure of human flight began with daring inventors and aeronauts in 18th-century Paris, where a handful of brilliant and colorful pioneers developed all the essential features of today's hot air and gas balloons. Their exploits fascinated Benjamin Franklin, who was serving in Paris as the American ambassador. To explore this burst of innovation, NOVA re-creates key flights, including the world's first manned voyage on November 21, 1783.
