This DVD set comprises two discs, one with three episodes called 'Make Me A Genius', 'Born Genius' and 'Accidental Genius'. The bonus Disc includes the episode 'My Musical Brain.'
The documentaries are all very well presented, and good for the layperson to follow. They are also interesting for one who knows a bit about the brain already. It goes into just enough depth for it not to be too technical and confusing. There's a lot of typical questions asked, such as is it nature or nurture etc but it is still fascinating all the same. Each episode looks at things from a different perspective, largely focusing on the minds of genius' in order to get an insight into what activity is occurring in the brain compared with the 'normal' person. Many interesting things are discovered. In the 'My Musical Brain' episode, popular musicians such as Sting, Michael Buble and Wyclef Jean are interviewed - and Sting actually takes part in an experiment where the researchers scan his brain whilst he is at work - the findings are truly interesting.
I recommend this to anyone interested in brain science, or science in general. It's really very interesting. I will watch it again and again.
Thank you National Geographic.
