This NOVA program documents the efforts of a team of world-renowned engineers, historians, and conservators to preserve and protect three of this country's most cherished objects: the American Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, and The Bill of Rights. Not only are these documents old and fragile, but they have not always been cared for in the proper manner. How to best prevent additional destruction has been the topic of much debate, with expert disagreeing on the best possible course of action. Nova relays in one hour what took this team of experts over five years to accomplish, giving viewers an accurate picture of the endeavor by fully capturing the disputes and extensive testing it involved. SAVING THE NATIONAL TREAURE explores the important role that technology is playing in the preservation of history.
