Can you imagine? Knowing nothing of artificial light. Your days being lit by the sun and the night by candle light? What a terrifying shock it would have been to observe the blinding light from a electric spark? The wonder of electricity, from creating light to moving the dead, electricity must have been incredibly frightening.
In a new series, Prof Jim Al-Khalili presents a story titled “Shock and Awe: The Story of Electricity”. A master storyteller himself, wonderfully captures and excites the viewer on the discoveries that eventually lead to the modern digital age. I won’t say anymore, except that i encourage you all to watch this.
