God is light. In all cultures, there is a close association between light and divinity, between life and creation.
Light is color. Light is energy. Promotes the life and feeds the spirit. That inspires art, religion and science. Light holds the secrets of the universe. For thousands of years, mankind has tried to unravel the mysteries of light in their “search for the nature of God himself.

Light Fantastic explores the phenomenon that surrounds and affects nearly every aspect of our lives but we take for granted – light.

1. Let there be light. Greek and Arab scholars and later Europeans such as Descartes and Newton all tried to understand light to gain a better understanding of God. One episode shows the amount of the origins of modern science occurred in the desire to penetrate the divine nature of light.

2. The light of reason. The second program explores the link between the development of practical tools that manipulate light and the emergence of new ideas. For example, Galileo’s observation that the sun does not go around the earth, was made with a telescope he had invented for Venetian soldiers and traders.

3. The Right Stuff of Light. The episode three of a discovery of the true nature of light and its impact on the modern world. All today’s technologies – electricity, mobile communications and our ability to illuminate the world 24 hours a day – stem to unravel the mystery of light.

4. The light, the universe and everything. In the final program Simon Schaffer finds that as more people were able to manipulate light, the most perplexing and complicated it became. This led to research on the strange relationship between light, the eye and mind, and the development of new technologies such as photography and film.
