This program recounts the life of scientist, inventor, and visionary Nikola Tesla, often remembered as more of an eccentric cult figure than an electrical engineering genius. Many of his achievements are still attributed to contemporaries Thomas Edison and Guglielmo Marconi. Tesla's surprising inventions are revealed in his autobiographical and scientific writings, supplemented by rare photographs and re-creations.

Father of modern power revealed!

By HVAC Teacher

Comments about PBS Tesla: Master of Lightning DVD:

Good docudrama on Tesla's life and major inventions. A primer that with any luck will spark the imagination of young learners to look below the superficial and discover real science.

Tesla is one of my science heroes, without him we would be bereft of modern power transmission methods and quite likely without wireless and radio as we know it today.

He was one of those black swan events in the genetic pool and it is too bad he did not pass on some of those genius genes to any descendents.

A great basic review !

By J Allen

Comments about PBS Tesla: Master of Lightning DVD:

While this program gives a great basic review of the man and his inventions, it does not and cannot cover everything.The man changed the world, but because of his lack of business knowlage the greed of those around him, he could have done so much more. A man that has never gotten the recognition he deserved.
