Credited with both unifying China and tormenting its citizenry, Qin Shi Huangdi, the "first emperor of China," is one of the most controversial leaders in the nation's history. His reign brought advances such as standardized currencies, weights, and measures, unified written and spoken language and transportation systems. In battle, too, he was centuries ahead of his time--creating assembly lines to mass-produce precision-crafted swords, arrows and other weapons. This documentary examines this ruler's complex legacy, from the brilliant military strategies that created an empire to his plans for the original Great Wall. Bonus disc, China's Wall of Doom, features the discovery of the emperor's 7,000 life-size army of terra-cotta statues and the Great Wall of China

"Among the overwhelming amount of inventions and patents Thomas Edison held, none was as controversial than the first chair used for electrocution. The late 1880s begins the "War of the Currents," as two rival technologies - AC and DC - battle it out for dominance in the utility industry. Edison wants to prove that Westinghouse's alternating current is much deadlier than the Edison direct current. To prove the dangers of "AC," Edison builds an electric chair powered by Westinghouse's AC system and axe murdered William Kemmler is its first victim - in an extended and horrific death. Thomas Edison's electric chair is a machine of dark design that is still being used today."--Http://
