    Arthur C. Clarke presents this unusual documentary on the
    mathematical discovery of the Mandelbrot Set (M-Set) in the visually
    spectacular world of fractal geometry. This show relates the science
    of the M-Set to nature in a way that seems to identify the hand of
    God in the design of the universe itself. Dr. Mandelbrot in 1980
    discovered the infinitely complex geometrical shape called the
    Mandelbrot Set using a very simple equation with computers and
    graphics.Arthur C. Clarkes soft-spoken style sets the common man at
    ease, and his pinpoint commentary makes the concept of fractals easy
    to understand. One need not be a stellar mathematician to grasp the
    concepts and why they are profound. The experts are trotted out, and
    they, too, explain fractal geometry in ways that are accessible to
    everyman.Fractals are part of our lives, and maths informs
    everything that exists, whether natural or man-made.When I saw this
    on TV several years ago, it reminded me of the Douglas Adams (of
    Hitchhikers Guide fame) book Dirk Gentlys Holistic Detective Agency.
    In the novel, a software engineer tries to create a program that
    sets the flapping of a birds wings to music using mathematical
    equations. That is exactly what fractals seem to do; they describe
    events in nature in mathematical ways, and the section of Colors
    which discusses this is eye-opening.All credits go to the owner(s)
