The story of scientist Robert Hooke and the jealous rival who erased him from public consciousness after his death - Isaac Newton. Newton plagiarised Hooke and conspired to destroy his reputation. Robert Hooke was "robbed of the credit" for the inverse square law of gravity and wiped from the pages of history. No wonder Newton never had a mechanism. Hooke's achievements were extraordinary - he made the first powerful microscope and wrote the first scientific best-seller, Micrographia. A drama revealing the extraordinary, prolific, bizarre and conflict-riddled life of Robert Hooke, one of the greatest scientists in English history, on the tercentenary of his death.
