Einstein und Eddington
Cambridge, 1914: Der renommierte Physiker Sir Oliver Lodge (Jim Broadbent, Cloud Atlas) erfährt aus Regierungskreisen, das deutsche Militär messe einem gewissen Albert Einstein (Andy Serkis) große Bedeutung zu.

Einstein and Eddington
Cambridge, 1914: The renowned physicist Sir Oliver Lodge (Jim Broadbent, Cloud Atlas) learns from the government that the German military hold a certain Albert Einstein (Andy Serkis) in high regard. Lodge asks his young colleague Arthur Eddington (David Tennant) to take a look at his work. While the German High Command decides that Einstein's findings are of no value to them, Eddington alone understands their meaning. He goes against the war rules on contact, and decides to prove Einstein's theory of general relativity, and thus to revise Newton's theory of gravitation. An opportunity to do this is coming in 1919 ...

Einstein And Eddington will be shown on Sky Atlantic on Friday 6th June at 21.00
