Before David Attenborough and Jacques Cousteau - there was Jean Painleve. Poetic pioneer of science films, Painleve explored a twilight realm of vampire bats, seahorses, octopi, and liquid crystals. In collaboration with his life-partner, Genevieve Hamon, Painleve made more than 200 science and nature films and was an early champion of the genre. This selection from 50 years of passionate scientific enquiry includes his most famous films - 'The Sea Horse', 'The Vampire', 'The Love Life of the Octopus' and 'Sea Urchins'.
