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

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Johnny Ball: Wonders Beyond Numbers are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
