  • Description

    A Remote Red Indian village in the United States was connected with electric light for the first time in its history this month. Previously the village -- in the Grand Canyon, Arizona -- relied on two inadequate generators for power, and lighting was by liquid gas. But now, at the flick of a switch, the villagers can enjoy the benefits of a service long taken for granted by the rest of the country -- indeed, a large part of the world. This film showing the moment when electric light went on for the first time, is complete with voice-on-film commentary for optional use.
