Earlier this week, I posted a great video produced as part of the Joy of Stats series  for Open Learn – free learning from the Open University   http://www.open.ac.uk/openlearn/body-mind.     I visited their web site this afternoon and discovered several other videos including this one about Florence Nightingale – a remarkable statistician.

“Famous for her lamp, it was the light shed by Florence Nightingale’s statistics that really saved lives in great numbers.”
