I think a great youtube series would duplicate Maxwell's achievement starting with Faraday, Ampere, Coulomb, etc., and doing their experiments with crude instruments and homemade equipment like they had, measuring amperes and flux and such when nobody had ever heard of an "amp", much less owned an ammeter, and you powered your stuff with the most godawful batteries imaginable.

And consider the math at the time. All done by hand. How the fuck did Maxwell conclude that electromagnetism could propagate as a wave at the speed of light? That part is incredible to me.
