Football Great Jimmy Johnson Hosts "Leading Edge" Natural Gas Segment on Public Television

Share Article

New segment will explain the history of natural gas and its relationship to the US economy.

"Leading Edge with Jimmy Johnson" has created several not-to-be-missed educational series for Public Television. The latest program is an informative half-hour which discusses Natural Gas in the United States.

Creative storytelling and the latest high-definition television technology are used to educate audiences regarding the importance of natural gas as a fuel of the future.

Although natural gas will appear to be a "new" fuel to many viewers, this fossil fuel was used as early as the fifth century B.C. by the Chinese. The fuel, found in underground rock beds, was formed thousands of years ago by the reaction of layers of plant and animal material to intense heat and pressure.

Scientists will explain how the fuel was formed, extracted from the ground, and processed. You will learn that in the process of making natural gas marketable, several by-products were created, among them butane, ethane, pentane, and propane.

The series host, James William "Jimmy" Johnson, served as head football coach at Oklahoma State University, the University of Miami, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Miami Dolphins.

The series is distributed to Public Television stations throughout the United States and is not distributed through PBS. Please visit the Leading Edge website at or e-mail the producers at info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com for more information.
