When the director of the Hidden Science TV show, John Webster suggested that we do a show on Nikola Tesla I agreed, but I didn’t really know much about the great man. So I set about investigating his life in order to write the scripts for the Tesla special show.
So I set about investigating his life in order to write the scripts for the Tesla special show.
And what I found was perplexing. First of all most people think they know his story. No matter who I spoke to they would recite the same facts which go something like this.
- Telsa was a forgotten genius.
- He invented Alternating Current which is much more efficient than Direct Current and on which our modern lifestyle depends.
- Due to this, Thomas Edison, Telsa’s former employer launched an attack on him and alternating current even convincing people that it was dangerous.
- Telsa was aiming to provide the world with a free energy source that was based on Ancient Egyptian technology, but was stopped by JP Morgan.
- He died penniless and forgotten despite making arguably the greatest contributions to modern life that a single individual has ever made.
With the collapse of The People’s Voice Television, we were left with an unfinished TV show. That is when my partner, James Gordon Graham stepped in to finish the production and editing. He also started to research Tesla’s life and together we shot another interview with James himself describing some of these findings.
Watch the show to find out more about our findings and from the other experts in Nikola Tesla but some of the most surprising are:
- Nikola Tesla’s mother was also an inventor so he started young.
- His father taught him telepathic skills.
- It seems he did not die a penniless man but a rich one able to afford the New York hotel in which he spent his last days.
Watch the full show with Ana Capone, Ian Moore, Dale Pond, Harry Oldfield and James Gordon Graham here.
