    Over the past ten years, eight Israeli scientists have won the Nobel Prize, an extraordinary achievement for a country this size. After all the pomp and fanfare, few of us really know what they were awarded for, and how, for heaven's sake, it relates to our lives? In five 35-minute episodes, we penetrate the world of the scientific ideas and the breakthrough discoveries of the Nobel winners.

    This is a personal portrait of each of the prizewinners, including a clear, dynamic and entertaining explanation that can be understood by any curious viewer.
