Summary
With vivid docudrama scenes, Nova recreates the climate of late 17th-century England, where a newfound fascination with science and mathematics coexisted with extreme views on religious doctrine. Unknown to most, Newton shared both obsessions, leading to experiments in alchemy along with his ground-breaking work in physics
