The final part of Professor Jim Al-Khalili's documentary series about the basic building block of our universe, the atom.

Al-Khalili explores how studying the atom forced us to rethink the nature of reality itself, encountering ideas that seem like they are from science fiction but in fact are a central part of modern science. He discovers that there might be parallel universes in which different versions of us exist and finds out that empty space is not empty at all, but seething with activity.

The world we think we know - the solid, reassuring world of our senses - turns out to be a tiny sliver of an infinitely weirder and more wonderful universe than we had ever conceived in our wildest fantasies.

The Einstein Effect

When he was a child, Matt Savage was diagnosed as autistic but at the age of six, Matt Savage learnt to play piano nearly overnight. By seven, he began composing jazz and in the same year, he released his first CD with his own composition. A day before his 13th birthday, Matt performed a gig at New York's most famous jazz club, Birdland, where famous jazzplayers lsuch as Chick Corea proclaimed him to be the "musical talent of the century".

The abilities of Stephen Wiltshire are tremendous. The Savant, diagnosed as an autistic child at the age of three, flew in a helicopter over Rome for BEAUTIFUL MINDS and after that he was able to draw a five meter long aerial panoramic picture of the Eternal City - from memory. As a drawing Savant, Stephen was even able to remember the exact number of windows of important buildings.

Brain researcher Professor Michael Fitzgerald from Dublin draws upon the theory that there is an interrelation between extraordinary creativity and disconnections in the autistic brains. At the University of Sydney, Professor Allan Snyder carries out an experiment where he tries to disable parts of the brain to get more creativity out of them.
