BBC Documetary on Big Data

This is a good documentary talking about big data applications and ambitious projects. Being a documentary at times its little dramatic but results in few cases are simply astonishing. 

"In Los Angeles, a remarkable experiment is underway; the police are trying to predict crime, before it even happens. At the heart of the city of London, one trader believes that he has found the secret of making billions with maths. In South Africa, astronomers are attempting to catalogue the entire cosmos. These very different worlds are united by one thing - an extraordinary explosion in data."
