Storyline

Nikola Tesla invented or developed many of the electrical technologies which form the basis of modern life, including: alternating-current (AC) power transmission and electric motors; high-frequency (HF) communications, the basis for radio and television; neon lighting; remote radio-control; and X-rays. But his visionary genius and technical skill was countered by his lack of business acumen and eccentric personality. After dying penniless in 1943, his "missing papers" regarding the construction of a 'death ray' became the focus of international intrigue. His research on particle beam weapons led to several American and Soviet military research programs, including the Strategic Defense Initiative, known as SDI or "Star Wars". Written by yortsnave

Truly Amazing Work!!
3 May 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I have seen nearly all the documentaries around on Sir Nikola Tesla but I'll have to admit that none of the others stand even close to how good this was. The best part was that this documentary didn't just showed the bright side of Sir Nikola life but also the points where he was not good, such as the social behavior etc.

It didn't just showed the inventions of Nikola Tesla but also the future advancements in the patents that Nikola Tesla registered.

So basically this should be a one stop knowledge base for the whole Nikola Tesla achievements, failures, miseries and fame.

Hats off to the makers!!

Good Day
