TiVo had been saving Rescue

TiVo had been saving Rescue at Sea for me for nearly a month. I finally sat down and watched it tonight. Absolutely Fascinating. Synopsis: young men into wireless craze, learning new technology, communicating with friends, mocking grown-ups and society. An accident occurs at sea. A young man is the hero. There's fame, parades and interviews, autographs are craved and collected, a movie is made to tell his tale. Young man sues film production company for invasion of privacy. The year? 1909. The young man? Jack Binns, a Marconi wireless operator. The observations? History repeats itself. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
