My Kid's Smarter Than Me

First-person stories detailing the challenges, joys, hardships, and daily dramas faced by ordinary families who are raising child geniuses.

According to Mensa, the high IQ society, the average person has an IQ of 100. An IQ over 140 is considered genius. Albert Einstein reportedly had an IQ of 160.

What is the hidden nature of genius? How can families balance their abilities with the challenges of growing up?

Dynasties: The Families that Changed the World

Across four episodes, Dynasties delves into the inner workings of the world's most powerful and intriguing families.

Each episode is built around a theme in which 6-8 families are explored.

Every story is self contained, but an overarching narrative relevant to the theme ties them together, revealing stories about them from the late 19th century to today.

Dynasties combines expert commentary with news archive to explore fame, its pitfalls and benefits of families who have lived their lives in the limelight.

We delve into the past and present, tracing these inimitable dynasties from their sometimes humble origins all the way to their modern day successes and powerful presence across global politics (Bhutto, Gandhi/Nehru), cinema and music (Chaplin, Coppola, Iglesias), business (Rockefeller, Murdoch, Rothschild) and more.

Fame

Fame can break down barriers. It can transcend culture and race. Death is never the end, so long as there is money to be made.

The Jacksons broke down racial barriers, but the pressure of success fractured the family. Francis Ford Coppola gambled as a filmmaker, affecting his whole family.

Fortune

Nothing and everything is personal in business dynasties. Families are bound together or pushed apart as patriarchs and matriarchs lead the way, or let others take the fall.

Business is just business. But a name is everything.

Power

Kennedy. Kim. Bhutto. Gandhi-Nehru. Just a few of the political dynasties that have been at the forefront of generations of war and revolution.

But, having a revered name does not guarantee the survival of an individual.
