Summary
A collection from History examines how the tale of a brilliant but deranged scientist who builds a grotesque monster from the body parts of fresh corpses has its roots in reality. Three fascinating documentaries from History reveal the truth behind the creation and legacy of one of fiction's most enduring, and scary, stories.
In search of the real Frankenstein: Examines how the experiments of real-life 19th century scientists Konrad Dippel, Luigi Galvani, Giovanni Aldini, and Andrew Ure, may have inspired Mary Shelly's Frankenstein.
Frankenstein: Explores the fact-or-fiction origins of the tale that became the first science fiction novel.
It's alive!: Traces the story of Frankenstein through all its artistic renditions, from 19th-century stage adaptations to 1930s silent films to Mel Brooks's satirical Young Frankenstein and Kenneth Branagh's faithful horror interpretation.
