BBC Horizon - Fermat's Last Theorem

BBC Horizon - Fermat's Last Theorem

 In 1996 this documentary was made about Fermat’s
Last Theorem for the BBC series Horizon. It was 50 minutes of
mathematicians talking about mathematics, which is not the obvious
recipe for a TV blockbuster, but the result was a programme that
captured the public imagination and which received critical acclaim. The programme won the BAFTA for best documentary, a Priz Italia,
other international prizes and an Emmy nomination – this proves that
mathematics can be as emotional and as gripping as any other subject on
the planet so says Simon Singh http://simonsingh.net/books/fermats-last-theorem/fermats-last-theorem-the-tv-documentary/
