Storyline

Arthur C. Clarke presents this unusual documentary on the mathematical discovery of the Mandelbrot Set (M-Set) in the visually spectacular world of fractal geometry. This show relates the science of the M-Set to nature in a way that seems to identify the hand of God in the design of the universe itself. Dr. Mandelbrot in 1980 discovered the infinitely complex geometrical shape called the Mandelbrot Set using a very simple equation with computers and graphics.

Mind bending

This is a fantastic yet completely understandable documentary which discusses in detail the phenomenon of Fractal geometry. Sir Arthur Clarke does an excellent job of never talking down to his audience, yet imparts a great deal of detail in an enjoyable fashion. Interviews with other mathematicians including Prof. Mandelbrot himself adds to the intellectual appeal of this great (and not nearly long enough, IMO) production. The Fractal graphics are utterly breathtaking, and are aided by a perfectly composed musical score by none other than Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame. The Fractal animations alone stand up to repeated viewings for no other reason than they are spectacularly beautiful. Totally recommended! Ten stars out of ten!
