Geoff Watts and guests describe the week's Moments of Genius chosen by five well known figures and explore what drives scientific research.

With moments of scientific genius chosen by Stephen Fry, Brian Eno, the first Green MP Caroline Lucas, Nobel Prize winning scientist, Sir Tim Hunt, and actor Samuel West; this Omnibus edition of Moments of Genius shows that it's not only scientists who get excited about science.

From a mathematical breakthrough, the Game of Life, to the importance of washing your hands, guests Phil Ball and Patricia Fara listen again to the moments of genius broadcast during the week and discuss what makes such moments happen.

Producer: Anna Buckley.
