This program tells the story behind the laying of the transatlantic cable. The physical challenges to laying the cable were enormous. The project would require the production of a 2,000 mile long cable that would have to be laid three miles beneath the Atlantic. Cyrus Field, an energetic young New Yorker wasn't deterred, and since its completion in 1866, nothing has broken his communications link with Europe-not storms, earthquakes or war.

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Great Transatlantic Cable DVD:

Like the Tesla dvd the "Trans Atlantic Cable" was well done and educational. As an electrical instructor these films give insight into our past and the progression of our power and communication systems.
