I heard an entirely new way to pronounce 'molybdenum'. I didn't catch the narrator's name. He sounded like Stacy Keach but I could be way off. For the record, I've always heard it 'MO-lib-de-num'. On the show I heard 'muh-lib-DEN-im'.

It was Keach.
It was a good series even if they were describing construction of F-117 while showing footage of SR-71 assembly. I enjoyed watching it.
I also enjoyed watching show on WWII British Dam Busters. I think it was "Secerts of Death".

You're doing pretty well if you can say all the syllables one after the other :-) FWIW, in South Africa I've pronounced it like above. didn't know the 1st and 2nd syllable prnounciation, r.m.s. is agreat education.

The Amer. Heritage Dict. pronounces it as: mo-LI-t&num No B or D sound at all, unless B and D together is pronounced as T.
