Your Days Are Numbered: The Maths of Death

Synopsis
A short extract from the award winning stand-up comedy show Your Days Are Numbered exploring the dark yet funny side of the statistics which often inform health campaigns. Comedy double act Timandra Harkness and Matt Parker cut through the daily dose of stats and facts prescribed to us all with clinical precision, animated skeletons and the obligatory graphs. Be warned, there is 0.00000979% chance of dying during this film.
