James Watt is a Scottish engineer and inventor who changed the world. His improvements to the steam engine drove the Industrial Revolution. His success was so great that a unit of power was named a Watt in his honour. The year 2019 marked the 200th anniversary of Watt’s death and the 250th anniversary of Watt’s patent (to use a separate condenser to improve the efficiency of a steam engine). This podcast reflects on his life and legacy and highlights areas to visit. Podcast series produced by The PR Store - www.theprstore.co.uk Supported by Historic Environment Scotland - www.hes.scot
