BBC Leonardo da Vinci Episode I - The Man Who Wanted To Know Everything.avi
The TV series Leonardo attempts to write a biography of the popular, but much misunderstood, Leonardo da Vinci. This three part series uses dramatic reconstruction, expert analysis and the building of his machines, to bring the man and his dreams to life.
While Leonardo is popularly regarded as an artist and inventor, the series highlights his work as an engineer, geologist, anatomist and even astronomer. Through the series we build and test five of Leonardo’s incredible designs - some for the very first time - a parachute, tank, scuba/snorkel, glider and robot. Incredibly, each design proves remarkably prescient.
