GreenSense: The whole process of building a road, in kid-pleasing format. They'll watch it again and again (ours certainly did!).
This is the video that started it all, and the video that everyone has tried to imitate. Thirty minutes of non-stop road-building action, from the surveyors staking out the job site to the first car traveling down the finished highway. A friendly host named George, entertains and educates kids as they watch real construction workers, the heavy machinery, blasting equipment and the tools used in every step of a road-building project. This video has become a classic, and was ranked in the top-ten best videos in Parent's Magazines' Guide To The Best Family Videos.
Road Construction Ahead has been played five times a day since it arrived.

A Personal Message From Fred Levine
As a parent and video producer, I am concerned about the messages being sent to our children on television, in the movies, and on video. At Fred Levine Productions, we are bucking the trend of violent, condescending and poor-quality children's programming.
In 1991, I decided to create a new genre of video that I could feel good about showing my own and other children. Kids are fascinated by and have a natural curiosity about the way the real world works. The success of my first live-action title in 1991 underscored the need for non-violent, reality-based, educational and entertaining videos.
We are creating what concerned people want kids to see. All of our award-winning titles are providing thousands of families with the type of entertainment they want for their children.
What's next? With so few quality programs out there for kids, the sky is the limit. I want to keep pushing the bounds of conventional children's entertainment.
