    One of the videos I've really like is the BBC documentary The Copenhagen Fallout. It shows the relationship between two of the greatest physicists of the past century, Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, who together established Quantum Mechanics. They also had a close personal friendship, which was stretched to the breaking point by the events of World War 2.

    The document revolves around a meeting between the two scientists in Copenhagen during the height of the war, which is still the subject of controversy and debate (did Heisenberg assist the Hitler regime in their efforts to develop a nuclear weapon?). What I find interesting is that it shows the human side of these renowned scientists - we often times think of these geniuses as largely beyond us, but they are human beings as well, with their own issues and problems, and subject to the influence of politics and war.

    I couldn't find a YouTube version of the documentary, only a vimeo link (which isn't the best quality - sorry).

    Their characters both appear in the show "The Heavy Water War" on Netflix, with Heisenberg getting the most screentime of the two. It's well worth watching the six episodes.

    Looks like it has a different name in the U.S.
