Golow Gas: William Murdoch and the history of lightmaking technologies
Using film and moving image, Cinestar has worked with Pennoweth School and Cornwall College,to explore the world of William Murdoch and his amazing discoveries about light. He invented the gas light and was the first person in the world to have his house lit by coal gas! Redruth has such a remarkable history and local children need to know about it. This project is being developed in partnership with Café Scientifique, with screenings in Murdoch House and the Cornwall Studies Library.
