Excellent Data Visualisation - Mortality Statistics Meets Modern Video Technology

Exciting statistics on visual display on BBC4. It indeed is an exciting, visually pleasing and modern video. The presenter, Hans Rosling, a statistician and a guru of data animation, makes numbers look matrix-cool! I thought I was watching a 4-minute magic show. Savour in the power of great data visualisation. Watch the life expectancy and wealth progression of 200 countries in 200 years in 4 minutes.
