Magical Math Channelling

Daniel Tammet is a young man living in the UK, who is a real savant, a genius at math. His brain does math without having to "think". He experiences numbers as imagery and sees every number up to 10,000 as a distinct shape or image.

His mental abilities are extraordinary, almost magical. He can learn new languages in a week and does calculations to 100 decimal places in his head.

"It just happens. It's like I'm in the 4th dimension. Sequences of numbers form landscapes in my mind."

This gripping documentary follows David as he travels to the US to meet the scientists who are convinced he may hold the key to unlocking similar abilities in everyone.
