biography of Nikola Tesla
10 June 2016 | by jeremiah59See all my reviews

(Previous two comments have nothing to do with this title. They refer to a documentary produced by UFO TV.)

This is a TV series produced by RTV Zagreb (Croatian TV) with participation of Jadran Film Zagreb, a comprehensive biography of Tesla, shot in numerous international locations, in his native ex-Austro-Hungarian Empire (Budapest, Graz, ), France (Paris), USA... with some archival footage and patent papers.

10 episodes - approx. 60 minutes each. Croatian language.

This was a very ambitious project with participation of many famous actors from ex-Yugoslavia.

It has never been available on DVD.
