Documentary Description


This riveting, new three-part series examines three groups of geniuses to answer questions about human intelligence. Do differences in gender, brain size and brain hemisphere dominance enable these remarkable individuals to excel so far beyond their peers? Or, can education and environment help fuel intelligence and enable anyone to become a prodigy, if given the opportunity?



Using computer generated images, brain scans and expert testimony, we unlock some of the brain’s biggest mysteries Make Me a Genius profiles Susan Polger, whose unique education early in childhood shapes a supreme ability to play chess, making her the world’s first female chess grand master. Delving deep into the minds of savants, Accidental Genius shares the story of one man who suffered a serious brain injury that released a manic talent for painting that he had never known. Born Genius introduces us to Marc Yu, an amazing seven year old classical concert pianist whose brain seems specifically created for music.
