Summary
"Presented by Mony Python member Terry Jones, The story of 1 is a documentary about the history of numbers; in particular, the number 1. The story of the number 1 is the story of Western civilisation. Terry Jones goes on a humour filled journey to discover just what an amazing tale lies behind the simplest number we have. Using computer graphics, 1 is brought to life in all his various guises. 1's story reveals how the most celebrated civilisations in history were achieved, where our modern numbers came from and how the invention of zero changed the world forever and saved us from having to use Roman numerals today."--Container
