The decades-long scientific quest to develop a less hazardous cigarette is examined in this program from the PBS series, NOVA. Directed by Carl Charlson, NOVA: Search for a Safe Cigarette features discussions with scientists as well as tobacco researchers and manufacturers to trace the history of these efforts and make predictions for what the future holds. Several "alternative cigarettes" that have been developed over the years are looked at.
