"It is only by measuring that we can cross the river of myths."

Professor Hans Rosling looks at changing infant mortality rates in the "developed" and "developing" world.  

A master of bringing complex data to life through easy-to-understand visuals, Rosling uses the surprising example of Ethiopa over the last four decades to suggests that preventable child deaths may be history by 2030.

This film was created as part of a campaign from the Bill Gates Foundation. The Ri welcomed Bil Gates to 21 Albemarle Street on 29 January 2013 to present the annual Richard Dimbleby Lecture.
