The Story of Electricity

The Science and Discovery Series
By Dr. Jack Sanders, Dr. Jack Sommer, Mike Hassell & Pat Childs
Narrated by Edwin Newman / 2 hours 52 minutes

In the nineteenth century, scientists working with chemistry and magnetism began discovering a rich variety of electrical phenomena. These were to be applied later in inventions including motors, alternating current, radio, batteries, the telephone, and much more. This is the story of a new branch of science that changed the way the world does physical work and the way it controls information, spurring the Industrial Revolution, followed by the Information Age. The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history's most successful journeys-four thousand years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom or accepted practices; this is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. Aristotle, Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, and many others are featured.
