Heretic: Linus Pauling

The last to be made about double Nobel Laureate Dr Linus Pauling, this film was shot about a year before he died in 1994. It chronicles how the world of science, having accoladed him for his breakthrough discoveries about the fundamental chemistry of molecules, later derided him for his experiments on - and championing of - the health benefits of high doses of Vitamin C. A man whom 'New Scientist' magazine called "one of the 20 greatest scientists of all time" was exiled by science because of his Vitamin C heresy.
