Music, culture and life.

Clara Amfo and mathematician Dr Hannah Fry use numbers to explore The 1975's career, calculating the maths behind the music to discover how their success adds up.

How many times could the band have lapped the world whilst on tour? How much would you get paid to be in one of their music videos? And just how long will a fan queue for to make sure they've got the best seat in the house?

From Mr Morley the music teacher to Tim Mattia the video director, Clara and Hannah catch up with the people behind the band's success to ask them what numbers have influenced The 1975 so far.
