App Description

This free ten-part enhanced comic is set in Victorian Manchester and demonstrates the extraordinary parallels between the Internet Age and the Telegraph Age. Beautifully realised, and scripted by Leah Moore and John Reppion, the story weaves around the exciting lives of the young women and men working at The Electrical and International Telegraph Company and tackles 21st Century issues such as gang culture, cyber bullying, coming out and on-line flirtations! The Thrill Electric also features stunning animations, loads of contextual information, and a secret code that unlocks a hidden storyline. Produced by Hat Trick Productions for Channel 4 education.
