Yuan T Lee was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1986 for contributions concerning the dynamics of chemical elementary process.  In this in-depth video discussion he is interviewed by Ed Goldwyn (ex-BBC Horizon producer).  Starting with his family background we hear about Lee`s childhood in Taiwan.  His father who came from a relatively poor background was an artist who later became famous and his mother (described by Lee as quite revolutionary at the time) was a teacher.  The interview continues to give details about Lee`s research history and the work for which he obtained the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.  Finally Lee discusses politics and Taiwan.
