Known for films including Coal Miner's Daughter, Michael Apted's documentary roots began in the 1960s with the acclaimed Up series, where from 7 Up all the way to 56 Up, he returns every seven years to update the world on the lives and thoughts of the same fourteen British children. In these two films, Inspirations and Me & Isaac Newton, Apted turns his interviewer's lens to explore the human advances in the arts and the sciences with a slightly humorous approach. How do artists create? How do scientists hope to affect the world? Inspirations - Explore the true origins of creativity in arts through interviews with these seven figures of the artistic media. Musician David Bowie Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein Glass sculptor Dale Chihuly Choreographer Édouard Lock Dancer Louise LeCavalier Potter and poet Nora Naranjo-Morse Architect Tadao Ando Me & Isaac Newton - From Madagascar lemurs to a unified theory of everything, these seven distinguished scientists reveal the creative side of the scientific endeavor, beginning with their earliest scientific questions and including their most personal ponderings. Pharmaceutical chemist Gertrude Elion Environmental physicist Ashok Gadgil Author and theoretical physicist Michio Kaku Roboticist Maja Mataric Cognitive scientist and author Steven Pinker Geneticist Karol Sikora Primatologist Patricia Wright

Box set of two docs by Award-winning director Michael Apted: Me & Isaac Newton and Inspirations in DVD and Blu-ray format.
