The 3C surveys have enabled important discoveries in the study of extragalactic radio sources. Radio galaxies, which are black hole-driven objects, are the dominant class of extragalactic radio sources, that have extreme effects on their surroundings. These effects lead to consequences to galaxy evolution over cosmic time, and so it is important to understand their energetics and dynamics. I present recent work on 3C radio galaxies observed with LOFAR , a 150 MHz radio telescope capable of 0.3” images, comparable in resolution to the Hubble Space Telescope. Our current studies support the idea that our basic understanding of radio galaxies requires refinement, in preparation for the SKA era when we will observe every radio galaxy out to high redshift.
