This BBC documentary tells the story of 4 ingenious mathematicians, whose theories breach our understanding of the world, math and everything in between. Their ideas were frowned upon, and they drove each of them to madness, even suicide. What exactly did these geniuses see which we cannot, or have yet not seen? David Malone takes us into the minds of geniuses who were driven to madness by their revolutionary ideas including the definition of infinity, the presence of god, the fluidity of time and the principle of logic just to name a few. We as a modern civilization owe a great deal to these men as they let us have a deeper look inside nature’s laws and physics, which also made us fly to the moon and into space.
