Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Actor William Hurt narrates this profile of Albert Einstein's life and work. After he won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921, Einstein was often photographed in public, though many knew little about his private life. This program relies heavily on his own words, excerpted from his letters, diaries, and writings. Pictures from Einstein family photo albums and home videos give interesting insight into this rather private man.
