Genius - Ep. 1

Genius

About 350 years ago, a small group of friends, colleagues and rivals defied everything that was known about the world at that time. Stephen Hawking and Jim Al-Khalili explain how Isaac Newton saw mathematics at the root of everything, from gravity to light. James Dyson demonstrates Robert Boyle's air pump, David Attenborough celebrates the many interests of Christopher Wren, Richard Dawkins explores Robert Hooke's microscopic world, and Kathy Sykes charts Edmond Halley's exploration of the stars.
