The Joy of Stats by Hans Rosling: 4 minutes to show evolution of 200 countries over 200 years.

“I kid you not, statistics is now the sexiest subject on the planet” – Hans Rosling
In this spectacular section of ‘The Joy of Stats’ by BBC, using augmented reality animation, Rolsing tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers – in just four minutes. Plotting life expectancy against income for every country since 1810, Hans shows how the world we live in is radically different from the world most of us imagine.

    The video clip doesn’t seem to want to play when the I.P. address is in the U.S.: “not available in your area”.
