This is the story of one of the greatest minds in history.
An artist, scientist, engineer, visionary and all-round genius, Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) was arguably the main figure of the Renaissance.
Over three gripping episodes, this docudrama from the BBC reconstructs the life of Leonardo from early boyhood to death.
Each episode is infused with brilliant academic commentary and includes the building and testing of some of Leonardo’s inventions, including his tank, hang glider, underwater suit, and parachute.
Did these amazing concepts work as Leonardo intended?
