The Travel Detective: Season 9, Episode 3

This week on The Travel Detective: It’s known as the Motor City, with ties to the automobile industry that go back literally to day one. Its quintessential American music gave birth to the Motown sound, and yet it was plagued by a financial crisis that crippled and nearly killed this city. And now it’s become one of America’s greatest comeback stories. Let me share with you some of my hidden gems of Detroit. That’s our cover story. Plus, while plane crashes remain extremely rare, Correspondent Scott McCartney tells us why the survivability rate is actually very high, and continues to rise. And then, pack your bags, as we investigate not which companies have the best luggage, but which have the best warranties. All this and more on the next edition of The Travel Detective on PBS.
