'Lost Lightning: The Missing Secrets
of Nikola Tesla'
This is the excellent documentary about Nikola Tesla produced by TNT in 1998.
Nikola Tesla's patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems, including the polyphase system of electrical distribution and the AC motor, with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.
Tesla's fame rivaled that of any other inventor or scientist in history or popular culture, but due to his eccentric personality and his seemingly unbelievable and sometimes bizarre claims about possible scientific and technological developments, he has been largely forgotten by history.
