Modern Marvels: The Telephone
The name Alexander Graham Bell has become synonymous with the telephone. But the creator of the tool that revolutionized human communication almost lost credit for the invention to his longtime rival, Elisha Gray -- who filed a patent for a similar device a mere two hours after Bell. This program takes viewers on a journey to witness the dramatic development and continuing evolution of one of the most influential mechanisms ever invented.
