"THE JOY OF" Documentaries

BBC Four's gleefully fun and nerdy, award-winning maths films: The Joy of Data, The Joy of Logic, The Joy of Chance, and The Joy of Stats. The Joy of Data offers a witty, exhilarating and mind-expanding exploration of THE word of our times - data - with mathematician Dr. Hannah Fry. This high-tech romp reveals exactly what data is and how it is captured, stored, shared and made sense of, featuring topics on Scrabble and Wikipedia. The Joy of Logic offers a sharp, mind-expanding and exuberant foray into the world of logic with Computer Scientist Dave Cliff. In The Joy of Chance, Professor David Spiegelhalter tries to pin down what chance is and how it works in the real world. Winner of the Grierson Award for Best Science/ Natural History Documentary in 2011, The Joy of Stats takes viewers on a roller coaster ride through the wonderful world of statistics to explore the remarkable power stats have to change our understanding of the world we live in. The host is superstar boffin Hans Rosling whose eye-opening, mind-expanding, and very funny online lectures have made him an international internet legend.
