"...One is like bright light. Two is a movement from left to right. Five is like a clap of thunder or the sound of a wave against a rock."
For this fascinating multi-award winning documentary (BAFTA, RTS, Grammy nominated), BDH worked with Daniel Tammet in an attempt to visualise and edit his striking blend of imagery and logic, as part of in his incredible mathematical calculations.
Daniel can do calculations to 100 decimal places in his head, and learn a language in a week. 'The Boy With The Incredible Brain' follows Daniel as he travels to America to meet the scientists who are convinced he may hold the key to unlocking similar abilities in everyone. He also meets the world's most famous savant, KIm Peek, the man who inspired Dustin Hoffman's character in the Oscar winning film 'Rain Man'.
