Einstein Revealed
Einstein Revealed is a PBS science documentary chronicling Albert Einstein's life and scientific achievements from his birth in 1879 to his death in 1955. This film consists of two parts (each of around an hour's duration). The first part is about Einstein's early life from his birth in 1879 to the Miracle Year, 1905. Focusing on Einstein's quest to understand the nature of light and his development of the Special Theory of Relativity, it reveals Einstein's family background, his school life in Germany and Switzerland, and his marriage to Mileva Maric. The second part chronicles Einstein's life from 1907 to his death in 1955. It features Einstein's hard work to develop the General Theory of Relativity and his unfinished work - Unified Field Theory. And also it reveals Einstein's personal life - his divorce to Mileva, second marriage to Elsa, and his life in America.
