Description

Just under 200 years ago scientists discovered something profound; that electricity is connected to another of nature's most fundamental forces - magnetism. Harnessing the link between magnetism and electricity would completely transform the world, allowing us to generate and transmit a seemingly limitless amount of electric power. This gave us the power to run industry, communicate across continents and homes and businesses. These developments made possible the growth and evolution of modern societies around the world regardless of their location. This is the story of how scientists and engineers unlocked the nature of electricity in an extraordinary century of innovation and invention. ¬ęThe Open University
