FRI NIGHT VID: Rjukan - The Power of Water

Tonight's Friday Night Video features the Norwegian town of Rjukan, once believed to be the home of the world's tallest waterfall, the Rjukanfossen. 

At 104m high, the waterfall was used to generate electricity through a series of power plants, which became synonymous with this region of Norway. Today, people are still drawn to the waterfalls of Rjukan but for a different purpose - to climb the falls in their frozen state whilst appreciating the wealth of history surrounding them.
