The Birth of the Calculus

This is a documentary presented by Jeremy Gray, about the birth of the calculus. Two men independently discovered and formulated methods for the Calculus, Newton in England and Leibniz in Paris. Jeremy Gray visits first Cambridge, to trace Newtons lines of thought through his notebooks, then Hanover, where Leibniz’s original notes are stored to trace his very different approach to the same problem.
