The Story of 1

Gather your family around your computer monitor, especially your children, and watch as Terry Jones, of Monty Python fame, narrates this amusing documentary exploring the interesting history behind the simplest of numbers: 1, and how it has consistently managed to change the world.

Through its development, and our understanding of it, you'll see it travel through caveman societies, Sumeria, Egypt, Greece, Rome, India, Persia and modern Europe, and revolutionize the world in the process. You will also get to see what some of the greatest mathematicians in history, like Pythagoras, Archimedes, Fibonacci, Leibniz and Alan Turing, have done with it; you'll be amazed... it even managed to shorten the duration of World War II...



If you like to laugh, and who doesn't?, you can always watch this totally hilarious video about how sad and lonely zero feels; it's awesome!
