Car Factory Revives Georgia City

West Point, Georgia began to decline when the textile industry moved out. Now, it's experiencing a renaissance as a new car factory moves into town, bringing 20,000 jobs by 2014.

"The US town of Westpoint in Georgia is booming thanks to the South Korean auto firm Kia, which has chosen to build a factory there. John Donnison reports."
