S1 E2: In the next instalment of this BBC science documentary, Marcus du Sautoy discovers how, as Europe fell into the Dark Ages, the development of math was taken up enthusiastically in the East. India came up with symbols for zero and concepts of infinity, while numeracy helped to build the Great Wall of China. How did these developments influence western thinkers of the Middle Ages such as Fibonacci?
