Elon Musk: Superhero Or Supervillain? | Preview (Channel 4)

This documentary goes behind the headlines to delve into the life of flamboyant, on/off richest man in the world, Tesla billionaire and space pioneer Elon Musk.



He's part of a tiny group of powerful, uber-rich men with global reach exceeding governments. An entrepreneur who champions green tech, is launching SpaceX rockets that one day might reach Mars, and just paid $44 billion for Twitter.



Is he the greatest inventor and businessman the world has ever seen or a man who's more noise than substance? This film interviews those who know Musk, who've worked with him, and who have made millions investing in his businesses.


It also hears from those who've gone to war with his companies. Musk recently revealed that he has Asperger's. His tweets can move stock markets and spark buying and selling frenzies.



Elon Musk is permanently in the headlines alongside his multiple controversial and eye-catching businesses, PR stunts and personal life. Beneath all the razzamatazz, is all the noise and hype for real?


Airs Monday 16th May on Channel 4.
