A Grã-Bretanha pode ser apenas uma pequena ilha, mas seus grandes cientistas e inventores literalmente criaram o mundo moderno: desde a invenção da máquina a vapor, computadores e da internet, à descoberta da teoria da evolução e do átomo. Nesta série, em cinco partes, algumas figuras científicas da Grã-Bretanha - Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, James Dyson, David Attenborough, Robert Winston, Paul Nurse, Jim Al-Khalili, Kathy Sykes e Olivia Judson - contam as histórias das pessoas por trás dessas inovações. De Isaac Newton a Frank Whittle, de James Watt a Isambard Kingdom Brunel e de Joseph Banks a Rosalind Franklin foram os que - por meio de sangue, suor e lágrimas - superaram todos os obstáculos em busca de respostas.

2 de 5 - A Roomful of Brilliant Minds
This episode deals with the Industrial Revolution, and those six man: Joseph Banks, the founder of an exploration that was to lead Charles Darwin; James Watt, the inventor of steam engine was to drive Industrial Revolution; John Hunter, the founder of modern anatomy; Edward Jenner who found a cure for smallpox, Henry Cavendish who helped people to fly, and Joseph Priestley, a clergyman who discovered oxygen and soda.
3 de 5 - The Lights Come On
This time we goes to the 19th century, the age of big machines, big enterprises, big ideas about energy, evolution and engineering (highly recommended for cyberpunk fans!) and learn the fascinating stories of the scientists such as Alfred Russel Wallace and Michael Faraday.
4 de 5 - Out of the Darkness
The fourth episode tells the story of the scientists and engineers who helped us come out of the darkness of war. These names are James Dyson who invented the jet engine, Robert Watson-Watt, the inventor of radar, Paul Dirac who formulated Dirac equation and Alexander Fleming who saved the lives during the war using penicillin.
5 de 5 - Asking Big Questions
The final episode focuses on the discoveries of the last fifty years from amazing discovery of the structure of DNA to revolutionary new discovery carbon nanotubes. At the end of the episode Dawkins visits Hawking and they ask each other questions about essential subjects such as origin of life, the future of mankind and God (reminds me a little bit of the scenes that Neo visits the Oracle.
