His mother Deborah Fletcher says he lives life at a very fast pace and at a young age he devoured so much knowledge he developed more knowledge about topics than his teachers.

Thomas Frith recently won Britain's Child Genius.

He and his mother talk about his insatiable quest for knowledge and his plans for the future.
