Genius of the Modern World

Available on BBC Select, Prime Video, MagellanTV Documentaries, Tubi TV
The 19th century was a time of revolution - in politics and in ideas. Three great thinkers led the way - Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzche and Sigmund Freud - reimagining global economics, questioning our morality and unravelling the workings of the mind. Their quest drove them to extremes - into poverty, into madness. Their ideas would bring the world as we know it kicking and screaming into being.
Starring Bettany Hughes
