Over the past decade, eight Israeli scientists have won the Nobel Prize, an extraordinary achievement for a country its size. But beneath all the celebrations, pomp and ceremony, what do the awards mean? And what effect do they have on our lives? Aaron Ciechanover details his journey from stealing and selling thongs on the beach to becoming a groundbreaking scientist; chemist Dan Shechtman goes from a laughing stock to a Nobel laureate. In four 35-minute episodes, director Rosenwaks teases out the fascinating life stories behind the awards, as these fascinating people explain their amazing achievements in accessible and entertaining ways.
