“Six Glasses” on “CBS Sunday Morning”

Over the summer CBS filmed a little segment about my book at various locations in London, including the Cutty Sark (where we discussed tea and rum), the Jamaica Wine House (a pub on the site of London’s oldest coffeehouse), an American-style diner (to talk about Coca-Cola) and even at home (where I held one of my water tastings with friends). Well, it looks as though the result is finally going to air on CBS Sunday Morning on November 27th. Goodness knows what they’ll include from all that footage. They even filmed me playing the drums. Everything takes ages when doing TV, but it was a lot of fun. Now, back to my Thanksgiving beer…

    Dear Mr. Standage:

    I am looking for a video of your appearance on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ (referenced above) to use in the economics course I am teaching. It was about your book ‘The History of the World In Six Glasses’ and aired on November 27, 2005. Is it possible to acquire a video of this segment? If not, are transcripts available? Anything you could suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    I hope to use this clip as an introduction to the global economy. Thank you for your assistance with this matter.
