The extraordinary story of world-renowned wildlife cinematographer and inventor Dr Jim Frazier, whose optical genius paved the way for much of the world's cutting-edge 3D technology. His life spent deep in Pacific mangroves, wild jungles and insect-filled caves, this Oscar-winner's darkest hour came from court cases, patents and business sharks. Scoffed at for 'breaking the laws of physics', his is a riches-to-rags-to-riches tale. His inventions have since revolutionised aspects of fighter-jet flying, heart surgery, covert surveillance and cinema entertainment. With exclusive interviews from Academy Award winning film-makers, world-renowned wildlife cinematographers, inventors and optical innovators including Hoyt Yeatman, Peter Parks and Lenny Lipton.
