How to Be More Creative

Synopsis
Horizon programme which examines the roots of human creativity, beginning with an investigation into the differences between the left and right sides of the brain. In the course of the programme we meet Professor Charles Limb, a jazz fan who has taken brain scans of jazz musicians and concludes that creativity can be activated to switch off a neural constraint system, and psychology professor Jonathan Schooler, who advocates the creative power of daydreaming. The programme also finds that there are no short cuts to creativity: there is a stronger correlation between creativity and obsession than creativity and intelligence.
