More or Less
If you find yourself taking comfort in hard numbers these days, you'll enjoy the deep backlist available from this long-running BBC show, which peels back the headlines to look at the data that inform them. Most episodes run around 10 minutes, though some are longer and more in-depth investigations (How deadly is Ebola?; Fertility: when is too late?). Recent episodes have asked whether Trump has really been good for the economy, as he claims; whether basketball players like Steph Curry are underpaid; and the real prevalence of tower block fires. New episodes every week.
