Summary
Host Brian Cox celebrates Britain's pivotal role in creating modern science. From recreating Isaac Newton's iconic light experiment, to performing Henry Cavendish's hydrogen explosions, to visiting the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Professor Cox traces 300 years of British scientific history. Along the way, he introduces the obsessive, eccentric characters who brought science into the modern world and developed a powerful new framework by which to investigate nature - the scientific method. He reveals the essence of the scientific method, explores the mindset of those who practice it, and explains how it has helped us cultivate and evolve our understanding of the natural world. Method and Madness is the first episode in the popular BBC science series In Search of Science.
