As reported on Statistics Views last month, the programmes will be produced by both the Open University and Wingspan Productions , the latter who made ‘The Joy Of Stats’. Using the 3D holographic projection system Musion will allow Rosling to interact with vast datasets in front of a live studio audience. According to the BBC, this will be ‘a first for factual television’.

The Open University has also included pages to accompany the programme on Open Learn which is available here.
