Renowned scientist Stephen Hawking presents three everyday people with a series of physical and mental challenges that show them how to think like a genius. Through large-scale experiments and demonstrations, Hawking decodes the mysteries of evolutionary biology, astrophysics and quantum mechanics, breaking down scienti­fic concepts in ways that are more easily accessible. The program “furthers my lifelong aim to bring science to the public,” said Hawking.

THE MIND OF A CHEF
Creation

 

Journey into Chef Magnus Nilsson’s meticulously planned and executed kitchen at Fäviken for a look at what it takes to run, manage and maintain standards at what some say is the most creative and surprising restaurant on the planet. Chef Nilsson explores how his early cooking experience influenced him to focus on local ingredients in his homeland, Sweden, and nearby Norway. He shows how to make the most of ingredients at their freshest and preserve them in creative ways, and examines traditional Nordic culinary techniques in the Faroe Islands.

 

Creation
When Chef Nilsson develops a dish at Faviken, he pays careful attention to the unique properties of an ingredient. Through research and recipe testing, the components of a dish are combined with the aim of preserving their natural quintessence. This episode follows the life cycle of an ingredient as it transforms from its organic state into a dish at his restaurant.
