...about Einstein

So you think you know Albert Einstein? Clever guy, crazy hair, had a few ideas about space and time - that's the one.

Well, James May thought he knew him pretty well too, until he started asking some really tough questions. How did a man falling off a roof change our universe? What does E=mc2 actually mean? Who wanted Einstein for president? And furthermore, what happened to his brain?

To help James find out, he will enter a universe of bizarre animation and motion graphics, where atom bombs and speeding trains collide with photons and monkeys' earwax. Along the way, he uncovers a world of facts that will surprise, amaze and entertain you - and you don't have to be a genius to enjoy it!
