Inside Moonshine

About the Show

White lightning, rotgut, hillbilly pop: it's as American as apple pie. Lifting the lid on the illicit stills producing moonshine, this documentary reveals the chemistry within home-grown hooch. Discover how Southern bootleggers developed the vehicles and driving techniques that launched the motorsports phenomenon that is NASCAR, with suspensions that could manage the massive liquid weight and 180 degree 'slides for life' that could outturn and outrun any government official. Inside Moonshine also explores the consequences of consuming this deadly brew given that some moonshiners add bleach, formaldehyde and even paint thinner for extra potency. Witness images of the brain as it absorbs 200-proof alcohol, and weigh the results as consumers pay the price by losing their sight.
