About the episode
The Independent on Sunday reported that the number of cases of serious side-effects being reported from the HPV vaccine were through the roof compared to other vaccines. Is this the case? More or Less investigates.
Where does the figure 1200 deaths among migrant workers who work on the world cup actually come from? More or Less talks to the International Trade Unions Confederation who first published the figure.
Tim Harford and the More or Less team also tell the story behind the chocolate experiment designed to deliberately fool the press.
How long is a generation? More or Less ask how you measure a generation and whether the length is changing.
Finally, Jordan Ellenberg talks about his book about how using maths in life can stop you being fooled.
