As the lights keep going out in offices and households, cable theft gangs across the country continue to pull up the metal and sell it for scrap. We are going to take the opportunity to talk about the science around electricity.

The Science Inside is produced by Paul McNally, Anina Mumm, DJ Keyez and Lutfiyah Suliman for The Wits Radio Academy, with funding from The Department of Science & Technology. The show looks at the science inside major news events.
