Lotherton Electrified

Set in 1904, a year after Lotherton Hall was electrified, the 10 minute film addresses the hopes and fears of upper-class and working-class people regarding electricity at the turn of the century – it is not based on true events, but rather on common themes and attitudes or opinions from the period. The film will be used at Lotherton Hall as part of their visitor offer. It will also be useful as a supplementary teachers’ resource for use alongside an online interactive for KS2 pupils (age 7-11), which addresses the history of electricity and connects in to three different curriculum areas: science, history, and design and technology.
