A newer (2015) documentary from the National Geographic channel ("NatGeo") about the War of the Currents.

They seem to run past some items fairly quickly, and I'm not sure about some of the conclusions made by the commenters (for example, did Tesla actually suffer from OCD?), but I'll let those who have studied the Edison/Tesla debate more thoroughly than I lead the discussion. Still, it seems like they could have said all they intended to say in thirty minutes (or less). As it is, the program only runs 43 minutes, but this video partially repeats the episode.

The sound goes out from 16:44 - 17:16, so don't panic, it's not permanent.

There is a movie coming out, which is called The Current War, which might please those who like a Tesla vs Edison showdown.

I associate Tesla with many conspiracy theories  Roll Eyes

I've seen that comparison where Edison was seen as the Bill Gates and Tesla as the Steve Jobs.

I think this video sums up my thoughts on Edison vs. Tesla quite nicely...

The Skeptoid podcast also did an episode touching some of the things he did and did not do.

Definitely Tesla. A fruit loop for sure, but an honest one!
