The Industrial Revolutionary

This 'gross, bag-cheeked, pot-bellied Lancashire man ' was the first great Capitalist. By the time he was fifty his fame was known throughout Britain. Then came his greatest defeat. A Westminster jury declared that he had not invented his greatest claim to fame â€ ?the water frame. In the shadow of disaster this programme assesses a remarkable man and a remarkable career.
