An 0b5e5510n 4 numb3r5?

Dave Gorman gets to grips with the numbers one to 10.

Are you more interested in the result of pi than apple pie? 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, ...? Ever ditched the calculator to work out the factorial of a non-negative integer where the result is greater than 1.711224524*10(98)?

The popular numbers programme More or Less returns to BBC Radio on 17 April and its producers would like to hear from you.

First broadcast as a pilot, the show has become a fixture on the Radio 4 schedule, inspired by society's current obsession with numbers.

Open the pages of any newspaper and you will see risks of this, targets for that, new spending and new cuts, arguments about productivity, performance indicators, measurements, statistics and quantification of every kind.

Are you someone who's fascinated by numbers? Does your love range from the rational to the complex with computable ones in-between?

The programme's producers are looking for you to record a short video clip of yourself explaining your love of numbers.

Send your videos to or you have a large file you can upload here .

Read the terms and conditions At no time should you endanger yourself or others, take any unnecessary risks or infringe any laws.

You can also upload the video to your own video channel on YouTube, for example, and use the following to send us the details or any other questions you may have.

Thank you for your comments. We are no longer looking for contributors.
