Windfall Films for The Open University & BBC Four

Presented by Dr Hannah Fry, this series journeys through the evolution of maths; from its philosophical origins to its status as a universal language and the foundation for all of science. We meet the great thinkers whose breakthroughs have shaped the language of maths and with it our understanding of the world. As we travel from the past into the future, we discover that this language is far from complete, as we search to answer one of science’s most profound questions: Where did Maths come from – was it invented or simply discovered by humans.
