Everything is in Pi

Everything is in Pi


On 14th March 2004, autistic savant Daniel Tammet recited the first 22,514 decimal places of the Pi. He told his story to BBC Radio 4 for their programme "Short Cuts" in the Series 6 episode "Nothing".

Daniel is a synesthete, which means his senses can connect, which helps him to have such a vast memory. For example, he sees numbers as having colours and personalities. It only seemed fitting that a visual companion to Daniel's story be created.

Everything is in Pi was screened at Flatpack Film Festival in April 2016.

Short Cuts is a Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 4 produced by Eleanor McDowell.
