Episode Description

A profile of one of the 20th century's most important minds and recognizable faces--his very name a synonym for genius. Born in Germany in 1879, Albert Einstein was a surprisingly poor student, and failed his first entrance exam to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. We look at the long road to recognition, his brilliant theories, including relativity, his Nobel Prize in Physics, and his lifelong work for and devotion to international peace and world government.
