If "gravity is a warp in the fourth dimension" sounds a bit Star Trek to you, then you need to watch this doc. If not, you'll probably want to watch it anyway. Einstein's general relativity had its 100th anniversary this year, and it's still the best theory we have for deciphering the geometry of space, time and gravity – at least on a grand scale.
Despite this, most people still struggle with relativity and why it was so revolutionary. This documentary spells out the meaning behind the maths using cute stop-motion trains and cosy-looking reconstructions. It might be too basic for some, but it's an engrossing intro to the thought processes behind one of history's most stunning ideas.
David Tennant narrates a docudrama exploring the story behind Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which turned science's understanding of gravity, space and time on its head when it was published in November 1915. The film takes viewers on a visual journey that begins in Einstein's young mind, follows the thought experiments that gave him stunning insights about the physical world and ultimately reaches the extremes of modern physics.
