Professor David Spiegelhalter tries to pin down what chance is and how it works in the real world, as he explores the mysteries of probability in The Joy Of Chance. Chance is the vital branch of mathematics that can give us a handle on what might happen in the future, whether it be determining the weather, or even one’s life expectancy. This show tells the story of how we discovered how chance works, and even to work out the odds for the future; how we tried – but so often failed – to conquer it; and how we may finally be learning to love it, and utilising its very nature in order to help crack some of science’s more intricate problems.
