Dr Richard Noakes, lecturer in History at the University of Exeter in Falmouth, works on the history of the physical sciences. He has been writing a book on the relationship between physics and psychical research in Britain during the 19th and 20th centuries, including links with the development of the cable and wireless businesses from 1850. 

Tonight he explores ways in which people were interested in connections between telegraphic waves and the supernatural world.
