This is an actual TV show in the UK (based on a Japanese program), broadcast on a channel called Dave. In it, Dara O Briain and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, along with special comedy guests, take on math puzzles (and compete against school-aged math whizzes in the process).
Watch at least the first segment, to see Dara come up with a frikkin’ ingenious solution to a geometry problem.
Could there be a show like this broadcast on TV in the US? Of course not. We only have a thousand channels, there’s no room!
