Battle of the brains by Ying guo guo jia guang bo gong si huan qiu gong si(British Broadcasting Corporation Worldwide)( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This programme sets out to test intelligence by avoiding the standard use of an IQ test. Seven people, highly successful in their different fields, are put through a series of different tests aimed to 'measure' their intellect. The framing of the documentary, including the narrator, is similar to those from a popular TV series called 'The Apprentice', where entrepreneurs are pitted against each other. Participants include Susan Polgar a champion chess player, Gerry Stratford a jet fighter pilot, Alex Prior a musical prodigy, Nathan Hasselbauer an IQ champion, Bonnie Greer a dramatist, Seth Lloyd a quantum physicist and Stella Vine an artist. Initially on the original standard IQ test the clear winners are Lloyd and Hasselbauer but as different kinds of tests are put to the participants it becomes clear that intelligence can take on many forms, over-looked by the IQ test. These include tests to measure practical intelligence, imaginative thinking, artistic or creative thinking and emotional intelligence. Throughout we hear the opinions of various intelligence researchers, some of whom design the tests the participants take part in. Robert Plomin, geneticist, comments on how surprisingly heredital intelligence is. The end results are surprising with a draw for first place between Seth Lloyd and Bonnie Greer. There is some interesting archive footage relating to IQ testing in Scotland in the 1930s and then follow-up tests more recently
