Easy to understand presentation of the Theory of Relativity.
Verified purchase
One of the memories I have was watching this program on TV many years ago.
Not sure if there is any updated info but enjoyed watching it again and it does provide a easy to understand
explanation of Einsteins Theory of Relativity.
Glad I bought it, dated in it's presentation but that is to be expected given it was made back in the 60's.
