Abstract:

Dramatized tribute to the life and work of Alexander Graham Bell, produced on the 100th anniversary of his birth. Begins in Boston in the 1870s when Bell was a teacher for the deaf and a partner with Gardiner Hubbard in a venture to send multiple telegraph messages at the same time. Follows Bell and Watson's experiments, invention of the telephone, and demonstration of the novelty to potential financiers. Continues with a summary of Bell's other inventions and a dramatized account of his speech to young Bell System engineers at age 74 on his hopes for the future. Concludes with an epilogue that shows how those hopes were realized in the development of motion picture sound, television, sonar and radar, and, in particular, a machine that records the human voice in visual symbols for the deaf.
