Is This Documentary Broken?
(Click Here To Let Us Know)

Ever since he was at school, actor and comedian Alan Davies has hated maths. And like many people, he is not much good at it either. But Alan has always had a sneaking suspicion that he was missing out.

So, with the help of top mathematician Professor Marcus du Sautoy (The Story of Maths and How Long Is A Piece Of String?) Alan is going to embark on a maths odyssey.

Together they visit the fourth dimension, cross the universe and explore the concept of infinity. Along the way, Alan does battle with some of the toughest maths questions of our age.

But did his abilities peak 25 years ago when he got his grade C O-Level? In this documentary, Alan will try to master the most complex maths concept there is.

      I find most high level mathematicians make silly mistakes like this often. The maths they do often does’t involve basic arithmetic.
