Think of Johnny Ball

Hear him on this week's Midweek.

English God of Numbers, Johnny Ball appears on this week's Midweek (hosted by Not Libby Purves. Boo!).

As wonderful as ever, the numerate master of the Balls expounds on New Guinea counting systems, why it isn't a coincidence that a circle has 360 degrees and a year has 365 days, and how hard it is to tear a telephone directory in half.
