This documentary was one again last night.

It's really interesting and worth a watch.

He was my favourite presenter growing up. When he was diagnosed with Asperger's I felt a real connection with him.

Yes me too. I liked how he goes into detail. Of course others do this in topics they like, but so happened he got me interested in new things because I connect with him. (like many presenters asp or not)

Have you watched the programme?

It's amazing (perhaps for some, but interesting for others) - worth a watch. An hour I really enjoyed, in fact watched twice.

Yes, a few times and I also saw a YouTube video about him presenting about Alan Turing.
