Physics and TV: Genius
A highly recommendable TV series for those who like physics is Genius. This show is on the screen on National Geographic Channel, available on some cable and satellite TV providers. The series tells us the life and work of one of the most brilliant scientists ever: Albert Einstein. It shows us not only the scientist and his crucial works but also his personal life and how the rise of nazism in Germany affected to the most famous Jew of the 20th century. Not only it is a very entertaining program but it is also very educational. It provides a quite comprehensible approach to his paramount contributions, such as his proofs of the existence of molecules, his explanations for the photoelectric effect or the most revolutionary physics ideas ever: the theory of relativity. An absolute "must" for those who like science or TV series.
