Synopsis

A trio of films exploring the subject of mathematics. Arthur C. Clarke presents 'The Colours Of Infinity', an unusual documentary on the mathematical discovery of the Mandelbrot Set (named after its discoverer, Benoit Mandelbrot) in the visually spectacular world of fractal geometry. This show relates the science of the M-Set to nature in a way that seems to identify the hand of God in the design of the universe itself. 'Clouds Are Not Spheres' tells the story of the life and work of Dr. Mandlebrot. Whilst 'Is God A Number?' is an account of the science of mathematics and its connection to mind and consciousness. Presented by Michael Barnsley and featuring Sir Roger Penrose, the film looks at the mystery of consciousness, whilst exploring the links between mathematics, the mind and the physical, observable universe.
