In 1543, a diagram drawn by a Polish priest revealed to the world a new idea, which forever changed our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it; the concept of a sun-centric universe. A plaque was put aboard the unmanned Pioneer space probe in 1972 to communicate fundamental facts about Earth and its inhabitants to life on other planets. How did a single diagram fit everything in?

A look at the decision making process and the human brain. Can maths find the solutions to seemingly unrelated human conundrums? Sophisticated ratio formulas are put to use to predict the chances of individuals scoring a date or buying a pair of shoes. To what extent is our decision-making process manipulated by how choices are presented? Brain scans show the amygdala (emotional centre of the brain) lights up every time decisions need to be made. And what is premonition and is it really precognition, the ability to look into the future?

NOVA leads viewers on a mathematical mystery tour - a provocative exploration of math's astonishing power across the centuries. We discover math's signature in the swirl of a nautilus shell, the whirlpool of a galaxy, and the spiral in the centre of a sunflower. Math was essential to everything from the first wireless radio transmissions to the successful landing of rovers on Mars. But where does math get its power?

Marcus du Sautoy discovers how, as Europe fell into the Dark Ages, the development of maths was taken up with vigour in the East. He learns how numeracy made possible great feats of engineering and how India came up with symbols for zero and negative numbers as well as concepts of infinity. The academic then examines the propagation of the knowledge to the West through luminaries such as Fibonacci.
