NARRATOR: TVA films chronicled how drastically life was changing. No longer would people scrub their laundry by hand. The wood-burning stove gave way to the electric range. Things we take for granted today--were a godsend then.
The valley set national records for the sale of stoves and refrigerators. Classes taught people how to use their new appliances. Power brought the valley into the modern age. It even touched people's hearts. They could now listen to radio.
