CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
4 - 6 JUNE
The Fair Intellectual Club is set in Edinburgh at the dawn of The Enlightenment. The boundaries of philosophy, science and art are expanding rapidly. An exciting time for all intellectuals, well, all MALE intellectuals. Early Georgian morality dictates that such matters are not for the fragile female brain. The series focuses on three teenage girls who form a secret society to flaunt convention and expand their minds. In this episode whilst Isaac Newton is struggling with a theory to explain why things keep falling on his head, he encounters the Fair Intellectual club. With their help the penny finally drops.
