Could you have come up with Einstein's theory of relativity? If not - why not? This is what Marcus du Sautoy, professor of mathematics, wants to explore.

In the program, Marcus meets some remarkable individuals and also talks to a scientist who's identified a gene for learning. (From the UK) (Documentary) (Rpt) G CC
