A Donegal student looks at how energy might be harvested from the wind.

Patrick Grady, a young student from Falcarragh Community School in Donegal was a runner-up in the Aer Lingus Young Scientist Exhibition in 1979 with a project about generating heat from wind energy.

'There For The Taking' traces the story of Patrick Grady looking to use the wind to power Patrick McGinley's electric bike.

The noise and pollution created by traffic in the Donegal town of Letterkenny gets Patrick Grady thinking about creating an alternative environmentally friendly means of transport using energy generated from wind.

He tests out the level of power generated by the wind while travelling by car. 

'There For The Taking' was broadcast on 3 January 1980. The narrator is Conor McAnally.
