Narrated by Benjamin Soames. Nine remarkable men produced inventions that changed the world. The printing press, the telephone, powered flight, recording and others have made the modern world what it is. But who were the men who had these ideas and made reality of them? As David Angus shows, they were very different quiet, boisterous, confident, withdrawn but all had a moment of vision allied to single-minded determination to battle through numerous prototypes and produced something that really worked. It is a fascinating account for younger listeners. Narrated by Benjamin SoamesOriginal Publisher: Naxos AudiobooksRun Time: 02:30:00SKU: 3610Unabridged SKU 3610.

Our everyday lives are continually influenced by inventors whose ideas have led to commercial products available in most high streets across the civilised world. For the most part these creative individuals have remained relatively unknown. Yet some of the companies set up by the successful inventors survive to this day albeit with company names no longer associated with the original idea. Volume 1 of this two volume set documents some of the key inventions from the 'Spinning Jenny' invented by Hargraves in the late eighteenth century, to some of the most commercially successful ideas of the early 20th century.
