For British members of ECN, and anyone else who can receive BBC television by whatever means, there is a TV show coming up next week entitled "Blackout Britain."
It's billed as an investigation into the state of Britain's power system and will supposedly reveal how vulnerable we are to blackouts.
I have no idea how technical or otherwise the report will be, but it might be worth a look (if only to wait for mistakes and poke fun at the TV journalists!

Any of you outside the U.K. but with access to digital satellite, note that BBC is now free to air, so you might be able to watch it as well:
