Summary "This Grierson Award nominated film follows Josiah Wedgwood, one of the founding fathers of the Industrial Revolution and the man who revolutionized English pottery. Wedgwood was a self-made, self-educated creative giant, whose other achievements might be better known if he wasn't so celebrated for his pottery. Historian A.N. Wilson shows that Wedgwood was a man with a hand in every part of the revolutionary pie: invention, transport policy, engineering, politics, marketing, education, industrial relations, trade, human rights--and philosophy."--Container.
