When I was young my father said to me:
“Knowledge is Power….Francis Bacon” I
understood it as “Knowledge is power, France is
Bacon”. For more than a decade I wondered over
the meaning of the second part and what was the
surreal linkage between the two? If I said the quote
to someone, “Knowledge is power, France is Bacon”
they nodded knowingly. Or someone might say,
“Knowledge is power” and I’d finish the quote
“France is Bacon” and they wouldn’t look at me like
I’d said something very odd but thoughtfully agree. I
did ask a teacher what did “Knowledge is power,
France is bacon” meant and got a full 10 minute
explanation of the Knowledge is power bit but
nothing on “France is bacon”. When I prompted
further explanation by saying “France is
Bacon?” in a questioning tone I just got a “yes”. at 12
I didn’t have the confidence to press it further. I just
accepted it as something I’d never understand. It
wasn’t until years later when I saw it written down
that the penny dropped.

Chief technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones went to try it out.
