      This is a brief overview of the background in the history of physics leading to Albert Einstein's two great theories, special relativity in 1905 and general relativity in 1916.One strange thing is the narrator, Edwin Newman, kept referring to Newton's great work, "The Principia," as the Printipia. Apparently a typo no one associated with making the recording knew enough science to correct. Probably no one had even heard of Isaac Newton.
