Full Description

The story of power transmission from the generating stations to our homes and industries, with emphasis on the high voltage lines that form the national grid. The film demonstrates the dangers of electricity and stresses the extreme caution with which it is treated, particularly by maintenance men on the high voltage transmission lines. The implicit theme of safety is underlined by mention of the hazards of electricity in the home.
