The Joy of Stats really is a joy. It will be shown on BBC4, apparently scheduled for December 7. (That date comes from Hans Rosling on twitter, I haven’t found scheduling evidence at the BBC.)
I saw its debut at the Royal Statistical Society on World Statistics Day. Here is a five minute excerpt:
The software that is visible in the film is Gapminder, but it is a safe bet that R is used in several of the projects that are discussed. You can see a bit of a bridge between the two from the talk by Markus Gesmann and Eric Wambach “Google motion charts with R” at LondonR.
