Westinghouse: How an innovation, electricity, spread?

I watched a documentary on the famous Westinghouse Company. It has always been famous for the format war for electricity fought between General Electric and Westinghouse. This film details how the founder built the company up from humble beginnings, how he attained widespread recognition and legitimacy with the air brake, and then how he won the format war  with its A/C electricity.

A great account of one of the most important innovations in the 20th century.
