Dr Noakes, a lecturer at the University of Exeter, researches the history of the physical sciences, and is currently writing a book on the relationship between physics and psychical research in Britain during the 19th and 20th centuries, and the links with the development of the cable and wireless businesses from 1850.

In this talk, he explores the ways in which people were interested in connections between telegraphic waves and the supernatural world.
