[edit] Information

The Pythagorean Theorem is simple: x2 + y2 = z2. In this form, the equation can be solved. But what if the 2 is replaced with any positive integer greater than 2? Would the equation still be solvable? More than 300 years ago, amateur mathematician Pierre de Fermat said no, and claimed he could prove it. Unfortunately, the book margin in which he left this prophecy was too small to contain his thinking. Fermat's Last Theorem has since baffled mathematicians armed with the most advanced calculators and computers. This programme chronicles the seven-year effort of one mathematician, Andrew Wiles, who methodically works in near isolation to determine the proof for this seemingly simple equation.

The programme was made in 1995 and first broadcast 26th January 1996. This version has a copyright date of 1997 and is 3 minutes longer than the Xvid (UKTV Documentary) edition. For further information see Simon Singh's website - click on "Behind the Scenes" and scroll down.
