BBC Shock and Awe: The Story of Electricity
This BBC documentary does an excellent job of reviewing the
fascinating history of electricity and its many key players of the past two
centuries. It's astonishing how rapidly the technology unfolded and how
radically it changed how we live. So will it be with Free Energy.

An associate send me a link to an awesome documentary by the BBC on the history
of electricity. It's both informative and entertaining, being shot mostly on
location where the various pivotal discoveries were made, showing the devices
as they probably appeared.
Though I learned a few of these things going through the education system, that
education doesn't come close to the value of the presentation provided in this
three-part documentary on this topic.
I was pleased to learn that one of Benjamin Franklin's stated motivations in his
work in this area was to help provide the newly forming United States with a
tangible means by which they could further free themselves from the tyrannical
bonds of Britain.
Those of you who follow our news regularly know that one of my key premises
about free energy technology is that it will help liberate the world from the
tyrannical forces presently seeking to destroy the planet and enslave humanity.
It renders them and their control mechanisms obsolete by empowering the
individual, literally and figuratively. [By "free energy", I refer to
the source from nature that is ubiquitous, inexhaustible, and free for the
taking; though the devices that enable that are not free; but some of the new
modalities emerging will push the price point much closer to "free" as
I had not realized that the development of usable electricity had played such a
role in the founding of the U.S. as a free and prosperous nation. So now we have
yet another major example from history in support of the premise about the
economic and political boon that free energy technology can provide.
The emergence of free energy will empower the emergence of a free globe.
In watching this video, another thing that stands out for me is how different
life has become in just the past two centuries as a result of the inventions,
and how certain discoveries were key to opening people's minds and moving the
entire field forward with that understanding. A similar revolution is likely to
unfold as some of these emerging free energy technologies are finally taken
seriously, and the creative genius of the planet is unleashed in studying,
characterizing, and optimizing their effects.

Part II includes a feature on Nikola Tesla, both in the introduction and
starting at around 35:58
minutes. Unfortunately, rather than depicting the later half of his life as
being where he introduced technologies ahead of his time, they portray him as
having sort of "lost it." And in the third episode, they don't mention
his name when talking about the discovery of radio and other wireless
|Professor Jim Al-Khalili tells the electrifying story of our quest to
master nature's most mysterious force - electricity. This series tells of
dazzling leaps of imagination and extraordinary experiments - a story of
maverick geniuses who used electricity to light our cities, to communicate
across the seas and through the air, to create modern industry and to give
us the digital revolution.
Episode 1: Spark
Episode one tells the story of the very first 'natural philosophers' who
started to unlock the mysteries of electricity. This is the story about
what happened when the first real concerted effort was made to understand
electricity; how we learned to create and store it, before finally
creating something that enabled us to make it at will - the battery.
Episode 2: The Age of Invention
Just under 200 years ago, scientists discovered something profound: that
electricity is connected to another of nature's most fundamental forces -
magnetism. In the second episode, Jim discovers how harnessing the link
between magnetism and electricity would completely transform the world,
allowing us to generate a seemingly limitless amount of electric power
which we could utilise to drive machines, communicate across continents
and light our homes. This is the story of how scientists and engineers
unlocked the nature of electricity in an extraordinary century of
innovation and invention.
Episode 3: Revelations and Revolutions
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.

This is an excellent series, Prof Jim Al-Khalili is master of science exposition and manages to convey the historical thought processes that both stymied and stimulated progress, elucidating the big ideas that have led us to our current understanding with authentic replications of landmark experiments, and often the original apparatuses or locations. His enthusiasm is infectious and never becomes condescending. It's swift, concise, perfectly articulated and covers in five minutes what his only contemporary, Brian Cox, takes an hour to labour over, and without the constant frivolous location changes or gurning at the camera from halfway up a frickin' sand dune - if Brian Cox's style is classic PBS; Al-Khalili is classic BBC.
His other productions are likewise unmissable gems:
- Chemistry: A Volatile History
- The Secret Life of Chaos
- Everything and Nothing (this last one especially is a real treat for anyone interested in the vacuum)
I would like to invite whoever "MrVibrating" is to send me an email
about the possibility of writing for PESN on a regular basis.
