Isaac Newton's youthful experiments with sunlight and prisms established an
entirely new basis for the understanding of light and colour. His
manuscript collections in Cambridge University Library hold crucial clues
to how he worked. This film uses this invaluable evidence to explore
Newton's remarkable notebooks and experimental explorations at Cambridge
and at his Lincolnshire home.
