Nikola Tesla (Serbian:10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was an inventor, mechanical engineer, and electrical engineer. He was an important contributor to the birth of commercial electricity, and is best known for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. 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.

Television Documentaries About Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla: Master of Lightning produced by New Voyage Communications and aired on PBS in 2003. New Voyage Communications in Washington, D.C., developed a unique, in-depth television documentary about the life, times, and legacy of Nikola Tesla, American inventor and visionary. This program is the result of years of research, in which many new and unknown details of of Tesla's life have been uncovered. The production contains a large and extremely rare collection of photographs documenting Tesla's life and his inventions.
"Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is probably the first cross-over scientist. He is known and respected in scientific and engineering circles, but he also appeals to a youthful and general audience with no formal background in science. Today there is considerable and growing interest in Tesla, but there is lacking a comprehensive and accurate picture of his life and accomplishments. A major documentary has never been made about him. Much of the available information has been highly speculative, not based on the historical documentary evidence. It was our objective to make an in-depth documentary that is both entertaining and scientifically and historically accurate. A great deal of the story is told in Tesla's own words, drawing from his autobiographical and scientific writings.
In particular, the documentary sets the record straight on Tesla's inventions and accomplishments. Tesla was a contemporary of Thomas Edison and Guglielmo Marconi, and these two men are frequently credited for Tesla's invention of AC power transmission and radio. Our program demonstrates that this is not the case."
