This two-hour documentary on the life of Albert Einstein details his scientific discoveries as well as his personal life. Much of the information comes from letters that he wrote and received throughout his life. Many scenes are portrayed by actors to give a feel for what it might have been like to walk in his shoes. The program begins with his childhood in Germany and follows his experiences as a high school dropout, his avoidance of being drafted by the German army, his job as a patent clerk, his lifelong obsession with electromagnetism and light, and the various relationships he had with women and friends. A very detailed documentary, it is narrated by F. Murray Abraham.
