    A Brilliant Madness is the story of a mathematical genius whose
    career was cut short by a descent into madness. At the age of 30,
    John Nash, a stunningly original and famously eccentric MIT
    mathematician, suddenly began claiming that aliens were
    communicating with him and that he was a special messenger.Diagnosed
    with paranoid schizophrenia, Nash spent the next three decades in
    and out of mental hospitals, all but forgotten. During that time, a
    proof he had written at the age of 20 became a foundation of modern
    economic theory. In 1994, as Nash began to show signs of emerging
    from his delusions, he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Economics. The
    program features interviews with John Nash, his wife Alicia, his
    friends and colleagues, and experts in game theory and mental
    illness.Go beyond the Oscar-winning drama A Beautiful Mind and learn
    more about the life of troubled mathematician and Nobel Prize-winner
    John Nash and his struggle with mental illness in this PBS American
    Experience documentary. Exclusive interviews with Nash and wife
    Alicia are included.
