Shock and Awe - Revelations and Revolutions

Today on Far Future Horizons we present the third and final episode of an electrifying documentary series titled Shock and Awe: The Story of Electricity hosted by Professor Jim Al-Khalili.

Electricity is not just something that creates heat and light, it connects the world through networks and broadcasting. After centuries of man’s experiments with electricity, the final episode tells the story of how a new age of real understanding dawned – how we discovered electric fields and electromagnetic waves. Today we can hardly imagine life without electricity – it defines our era. As our understanding of it has increased so has our reliance upon it, and today we’re on the brink of a new breakthrough, because if we can understand the secret of electrical superconductivity we could once again transform the world.

Shock and Awe: The Story of Electricity is available on DVD from the Open University
