Alan and Marcus Go Forth and Multiply (s45e17)
Actor and comedian Alan Davies never really got to grips with maths. Marcus du Sautoy lives and breathes the subject. In just two weeks can Marcus make Alan think like a mathematician? Their journey takes them deep into mathematics' more mysterious realms. They take part in an experiment that suggests there is a spooky relationship between the abstract world of the Riemann Hypothesis and the physical world of atoms and crystals. Is maths on the verge of discovering a universal theory for everything? Before Alan's brain can recover, he is whisked off to the venerable Royal Observatory. At the home of time itself, Marcus and Alan explore the greatest, grandest question of all: what shape is our universe? But they discover the proposed solution is typical of mathematics: audacious, brilliant, beautiful - and a little bit weird.
