good music and excellent direction

this really speaks to me :)
the moving story of a main telephone distribution center destroyed by fire, and the efforts to restore phone service
new technology seems pretty complicated... but the presenter does a good job
includes an interesting tour of a telco central office
hot damn, it's western union all over again! :D :D
LIGHT MODULATION VIA ULTRASOUND... maybe this is only of historical interest, but i'd still like to see a home video projector that works off this principle -- relatively cheap & few moving parts :)
Great old silent film from AT&T, how to dial a phone! This new "technology" stuff is so complicated, I'll never get the hang of it... ;)
