About the Show

Nikola Tesla has come to be seen by many as a tragic figure, a visionary engineer who died impoverished and largely forgotten - eclipsed by names such as Edison and Marconi. A tireless inventor who registered numerous patents and developed many working prototypes, Tesla would become most famous for his dazzling demonstrations. Tesla the strange wizard and mad scientist eventually overtook Tesla the brilliant engineer and seer of the wireless world we now live in. Lost in the spectacular rise and fall, this film gets to know the real man, a consummate inventor and dedicated engineer.
