Starting at Souter
"Well, I knew a little bit about Souter from my work and I knew that Michael Faraday had been the consultant for Trinity House"
Well, I knew a little bit about Souter from my work and I knew that Michael Faraday had been the consultant for Trinity House when the idea of electrical lighthouses was being considered, and anything to do with Michael Faraday is absolute magic. So I was interested because of that and thatís how I originally got roped in.
