Me and Isaac Newton

"Me and Isaac Newton" is a documentary in which seven scientists ranging in occupation from theoretical physicist to wildlife expert explain what they do and the importance of their work. Concentrating on the aspects of creativity and invention that modern scientists must deploy in their research in order to advance their trades, the film is fueled with enthusiasm about new discoveries. Directed by Michael Apted, the film takes the shape of a dialogue about science as a whole - is it a field for young people exclusively, and if not, do older scientists have the same capacity as younger scientists to brainstorm new ideas?
