Thanks for the information Seashell, I often forget to look at what BBC3 has to offer. :)

I failed 'O' Grade Maths twice so it will be interesting to see someone with such a talent speaking about it.

It's a sweetly made film with several colourful characters in the story as well as the young maths prodigy himself. As he gets involved in more difficult maths assignments, he's expected to be able to clearly explain his reasoning. His difficulty in explaining the reasoning that got him the right answers means that his marks start dropping grades.
