Upcoming PBS Program on Electrical History

Great Projects: The Building of America
Friday, January 9, 8:00pm
Electric Nation
This episode documents how electricity became a part of every American's life. In the early 1880s, Thomas Edison succeeded in launching the electric-lighting era; power plants spread to cities worldwide. Most private utilities did not wire rural areas, however, claiming it was too costly. Yet electricity had come to be viewed as a necessity. If private companies refused to bring electricity to rural Americans, the government would. Engineer Arthur Morgan and lawyer David Lilienthal, leaders of the Tennessee Valley Authority, helped complete the job started by Edison a half-century earlier in wiring America.
