Independent movie studio Corinth Films is set to release a vintage documentary about legendary physicist Albert Einstein next month.
Einstein‘s Universe is scheduled for release Aug. 25 on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and digital. It marks the first time that the vintage documentary, based on author Nigel Caulder’s biography by the same name, has received a home release on any platform.
It originally premiered on television on March 14, 1979 in celebration of what would have been Einstein’s 100th birthday. The broadcast was made possible through a partnership between the BBC and WGBH (America’s leading public television network).
Peter Ustinov — Spartacus, Logan‘s Run, Death on the Nile — narrated the original broadcast. As part of the documentary, Ustinov visited the University of Texas-Austin McDonald Observatory in his quest to learn about Einstein and the significance of his work. He learns about topics, such as Einstein’s general theory of relativity, the “Doppler Effect,” and how the universe was formed.
The documentary’s run time is 118 minutes. A trailer for the documentary is streaming here.
