Horizon - Man and science today

Can you multiply 65 X 65 in your head? Do you know what a chromosome is? A seven-year-old child answers both these questions in a few seconds in this week's 'Horizon'
In this country we make provision for the bottom two per cent of schoolchildren, but are we neglecting the needs of the top two per cent? Should there be special schools for children talented in music or mathematics or of exceptionally high I.Q.?
The programme investigates new research into the ways children think and use their imagination, and also gives parents who consider their children gifted, insight into new techniques of education based on this research.

Filmed in the last months of his life, this is the story of the life and death of the priest they called a saint.
