Ever since Prime Minster Stanley Baldwin promised a land of cheap and abundant electricity in 1926, we have grown ever more dependent on free-flowing power. It has become as essential to the modern world as water and sunlight were to previous ages. But with concern over climate change and Britain’s nuclear power stations coming to the end of their useful life that era may be rapidly coming to an end. With Britain at an energy crossroads, a new BBC Four series, the Secret Life of the National Grid, tells the story of how the grid has shaped not only British politics but our landscape and our lives.
