Don’t Panic – The Truth About Population (1 x 60′) – Internationally acclaimed Swedish Professor Hans Rosling presents an ‘as-live’ studio event featuring cutting-edge infographics, as part of a short series of programmes exploring global population trends for the international current affairs strand This World.
The myth-busting show, which includes footage shot in Bangladesh and Mozambique, will explore how a growing population and changes relating to wealth and health are shaping the world of today and tomorrow.
Rosling is renowned worldwide for his compelling, surprising and often very funny infographic talks which harness the world’s data to explore global trends. In what promises to be Rosling’s most ambitious and entertaining presentation ever, this show, uses the 3D holographic projection system Musion which allows Rosling to interact with vast datasets as-live in front of a studio audience, a first for factual television.
