Johnny Ball: Wonders Beyond Numbers

About Johnny Ball: Wonders Beyond Numbers

Forty years ago, Johnny Ball wrote his first Think of a Number TV show, which opened the door to a whole new genre of programmes based on maths and science.

His latest book, Wonders Beyond Numbers slowly unravels the tale of how humanity built up a knowledge and understanding of shapes, numbers and patterns from ancient times, a story that leads directly to the technological wonderland we live in today.

Chaired by Mike Wade, Senior Reporter, The Times Scotland
