I have seen that NOVA movie about bees, they took a queen, held her in a tube about her size with her head and abdomen sticking out the ends. They then put her on the end of a long stick with a camera pointed at her and put the stick on some sort of rotating doodad. It was quite interesting to watch.

Yes, it is very interesting and most should get acquainted with the information as to how queens and drones actually mate. when some of the first films were done in Germany the 1980s it was something to see and learn about. More beekeepres need exposure for learning.
