Turbine Cowboys Add to Favorites

Taming the powerful force that is Mother Nature is nearly impossible but there are many people whose job it is to try to do that. Wind turbine workers are among those people as they risk their lives building, maintaining and repairing the turbines. This docu-series follows a team of would-be "wind techs" from hardcore boot camp training through the group's first year in the field as well as seasoned veterans who still face challenges on a daily basis. Whether they're still green or have been on the job for years, all of the workers face extreme weather, dizzying heights and possible electrocution on a regular basis as they push the envelope to wrestle electricity from the wind. In addition to following the workers in the field, this series introduces viewers to the people who are attracted to this dangerous job and why they are.
