James Watt - 18th Century scientist and revolutionary player
James Watt was a true man of the 18th Century Enlightenment. He believed that knowledge created the power from which the ideas which would change the world could be formed. His development of an efficient steam engine was just one example of this philosophy.

Watt was much more than just a creative engineer. Professor Peter Jones, Emeritus Professor of French History at the University of Birmingham, UK reveals some of the many faces of the man in James Watt: A Great Enlightenment Man.
