A cruel dilemma

one comment

From a recent article in the New York Times:

“On the satellite channels, I watch ‘America’s Got Talent’ dubbed in Persian, while at the same time, our state television is showing an hourlong program on mathematics. Which one would you prefer?” asked ************, 30, an insurance salesman.

  1. What kind of hourlong programs are there? I can only think of isolated documentaries like that on Erdos. Are there series of documentaries or other types of shows on mathematics (like there are on physics, or history)?
