Genius tells the story of the men and women that changed the way we live. These are the heroes, legendary icons, luminaries who changed the world through monumental innovations and staggering ingenuity. They gave us the airplane and the television, the six-gun, the A-bomb and the iPod…or at least they take credit for it. But behind every great genius is a great rival, an unstoppable adversary with incredible vision, determination and ambition. Out of their struggles came breakthroughs, the spoils of the heated battle between competitors. In this stunning 8-part mini-series, we hear the stories of how the ultimate rivals for posterity clashed, lost everything or triumphed. Genius reveals the fateful forces behind the greatest competitions for innovation and the contests that pit history’s brightest minds against each other in the race to lay claim to the future.
