A New Johann Bessler Film

A few days ago I received an email from a guy, who  I met about three or four years ago.  He gave me the news that he was going to make a film about Johann Bessler and he wanted to know if I wished to be involved. Of course I accepted immediately and work is expected to begin early next year.

He is an experienced presenter, writer, producer/director, interviewer, scriptwriter and editor.  He was formerly a producer and presenter with Granada TV ( now called ITV); founded film and TV production companies, authored six books and edited three magazines.  Whew! I think I covered all of it!

He was introduced to me by another friend, who I have been in contact for a few years.  He introduced this media man, thus..."He has a long history of music, TV and publishing, and is currently writing a novel about Bessler. I think he'd like to take you out for a pub lunch and chat about Bessler the man....  He. is intrigued by the story, and has a bottle of Jura Malt Whiskey sitting in his kitchen which he promises to give me when I make a working model!  He's a good bloke."  Can't think of a better recommendation!

The film will investigate the beliefs of those who remain utterly sceptical of Bessler's claims, almost certainly because of the laws of physics as they have been and are taught - and on the other hand it will assess the validity of the evidence presented by those who have become convinced that Bessler did indeed achieve precisely what he said he did - causing a wheel to turn continuously entirely through the force of gravity.  

It's early days but I am to be appointed associate producer which gives me a chance to influence, restrain or suggest ideas for the film.  In January I expect to be introduced to the film's producer, and I look forward to this with great excitement!

  2. John,... do you think it would re-enforce the credibility of this film if someone came with the actual working wheel.?

  3. I think you know the answer to that Trevor.

    I'm just wondering if this is one more thing delaying John's build.

  4. No delay jso. Christmas is more likely to slow me down. I'm working my way through the hurdles, hitches and my personal handicaps which tend to drag things out, extend promised delivery dates and generally get in the way of our best intentions. I might even finish it before (this) Christmas, but if I do you won't hear of it straight away!

  5. Sounds like a great undertaking.

  6. I would not be surprised if several of us stumbled on the solution simultaneously...things happen that way.

  7. Congratulations John. Good news. The world needs this story. It is a shame if not any of his codes will be shown in such a project. I would consider offering some of my more elegant findings to such a project to add momentum to Bessler story.

  8. Merry Christmas, John. The best of luck with the new movie project.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone here.

  9. Thanks guys for the kind wishes received both here and by email. I hope that you all have a successful and prosperous New Year without any health problems and that one or more of you achieves success in our chosen project - Bessler's Wheel.

  10. Should be interesting - especially as I expect RAR to be shown as a working engine any time soon.

    Fired up with the confidence that the Boys from Brazil have succeeded I re-examined the Keenie wheel
    arguments and can now see clearly why it worked.

    The essential point is this.

    If one suppresses the counter-clockwise rotation of the weights-minus-one as a single weight falls clockwise then gravity is acting asymmetrically and will turn the wheel.

    I shall be presenting the proof in detail on the BesslerWheel.com.

  11. In general, wheels and tires are pretty simplified. Your make, model and year of vehicle will generally only fit one size as far as the wheels go.

Was Johann Bessler an Undiscovered Genius?

A recent casual comment about Johann Bessler got me thinking; was Bessler a genius?  My first thought was to dismiss the idea because there...
