Black-hole driven processes in the Universe are now accepted to play a key role in the evolution – perhaps even formation – of galaxies, the cataclysmic death of massive stars and ultimately the production of yet-to-be detected gravitational waves. In this talk, I will present recent studies of stellar and supermassive black holes systems; I will show the ubiquity of fast outflows, the importance and role of magnetic fields and present prospects for future work with existing and upcoming facilities working across the electromagnetic spectrum and into the time domain. Finally, I will touch on the promise of lab-based plasma experiments as analogues for understanding relativistic astrophysical plasmas.
