Summary:
(1736-1819) James Watt tells the story of an industrious Scotsman who set out to improve the efficiency of an existing piece of machinery, and in the process, sparked the Industrial Revolution! Watt produced the first practical steam engine -- a machine that was much more efficient and powerful than other engines of the time. Viewers will learn about Watt's early life, his work on the steam engine, and how his adaptation of its design enabled it to drive many different types of machinery, resulting in an entirely new way of manufacturing goods. Through the use of dramatic re-creation, archival films, photographs and actual drawings and materials, students will experience the fascinating life and work of James Watt. Part of the Inventors of the World Video Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.

Only available in the US.
