Joy of Stats Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Tue, Oct 29, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

This engaging documentary is television science at its best - lively, entertaining and accessible. It 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 in which we live. Hosted by superstar Swedish scientist Hans Rosling - whose eye-opening, mind-expanding, and very funny online lectures have made him an international Internet legend - the program is an entertaining exploration of the history of statistics. It examines how statistics work mathematically, and how statistics can help show the world as it truly is, not just as we imagine it to be.
