To Infinity and Beyond

Synopsis
Infinity is older than time, bigger than the universe and stranger than fiction. Once you learn to count, in theory you could go on counting forever. But instead you enter a paradoxical world where nothing is as it seems. Mathematicians have discovered there are infinitely many infinities, and this programme takes a mind-bending journey to investigate the implications.
